In a first for Western Australia, the McGowan Government has introduced a new initiative - Problem and Opportunity Statements - to drive investment and support WA jobs.
The new initiative under the Market-led Proposals (MLP) policy allows Government to provide focused opportunities for industry to respond with innovative solutions that stimulate the economy and create jobs for Western Australians.
The McGowan Government will be issuing a series of Problem and Opportunity Statements over the coming weeks that cover a range of issues across various sectors, including health, culture and arts, tourism and the environment.
The first Problem and Opportunity Statement was today released to industry, calling for innovative solutions for the future of the current Landgate building in Midland and accommodation options for the public sector in the Midland area.
The Landgate building, which reverts to government ownership in March 2021, exceeds Landgate's accommodation requirements and presents a range of opportunities to better utilise the asset.
The State Government is calling for private sector offers to provide alternative accommodation options for Landgate in Midland, and/or acquire the Landgate building for consideration. The State Government is committed to retaining a public sector presence in Midland.
It is hoped offers will determine the optimal future use for the Landgate building, maximise the potential benefits to the Midland community and deliver the best value for money to the State.
Proposals for the Landgate opportunity are invited to be submitted until September 11, 2020 and will be assessed against the MLP Policy criteria.
