Tenders NSW has launched a new online business portal and concierge service to help bushfire-affected businesses get access to Government agency procurement opportunities.

Deputy Premier and Minister responsible for Disaster Recovery, John Barilaro said the Government had launched the service to help local and regional businesses gain access to procurement opportunities in fire-affected areas.

“Local businesses who want to help with the bushfire recovery process can now register on the online portal, which is designed to be quick and free of red tape,” Mr Barilaro said.

“This is the NSW Government putting locals first,” he said.

“Our regional communities are outstanding in emergency situations and we need to be as vigilant in recovery as they are in the face of disaster.”

Mr Barilaro said the portal would allow Government agencies and councils to upload details of available work.

“Since the portal was launched this week, more than 300 suppliers have registered,” he said.

Minister for Finance and Small Business, Damien Tudehope said a direction to all Government agencies had been issued to source work from local businesses as part of the bushfire recovery process.
