Victorian Major ProjectsVery handy web site if you are researching new developments.
Listed below are some of the major projects in 2003.
In 2001 the Victorian Government announced the Victorian Industry
Participation Policy (VIPP) for projects with government investment
to maximize opportunities for local industry. When the VIPP was
launched, Roy Lilley, ICN Victoria's Executive Director, emphasised that ICN was prepared to work with all businesses in a partnership relationship to achieve these objectives.
ICN Victoria knows that by working in partnership with industry, it is possible to redirect an extra five per cent of the value of these projects to local industry, thereby creating an additional 3,500 direct jobs and a further 9,000 indirect jobs.
This website has been developed to assist you identify projects that may be appropriate for your company, so that Victoria's secondary manufacturing industries can be developed through major projects.
The major projects website includes over $19 billion in projects that are known to the ICN and have a project value exceeding $50 million; exceptions include those projects included in the Commonwealth Games, Docklands or Government sponsored regional development type projects that may have a lesser value. These projects include both Government and private sector investments.
The projects have been divided into 11 categories, covering Commercial, Commonwealth Games, Community, Defence, Docklands, Health, Industrial, Innovation, Regional, Transport and Urban, which are either already under way, committed or expected to start within the next 18 months.
Each project description provides an overview including the value, the current status, the timeframes, the project manager, the constructor, the project sponsor, the contact details of the ICN consultant assigned to the project, conceptual project image and a link to the project's website where available.
