Queensland business gets first dibs on supplying The Games

QUEENSLAND businesses will have the first opportunity to supply equipment for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth Games Minister Jann Stuckey released the Forward Procurement Plan on Tuesday at the Gold Coast.

"This is the first time a whole-of-Games approach has been adopted for Commonwealth Games procurement activity," she said.

"From 5000 table tennis balls to 50,000 metres of temporary fencing, this wide range of anticipated procurement needs represents a huge amount of possibilities for many different industries."

Ms Stuckey said the Queensland Government and the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation had developed a procurement framework for GC2018 to maximise business opportunities at the local, regional and state level.

"Everyone from small family businesses to larger operations will have an opportunity to be involved," she said.

"The one-stop shop for GC2018 related business opportunities is aimed at giving businesses the best chance possible of becoming a Games supplier, and is part of our strong plan for a brighter future."
