State Government reports
The Western Australian Government produces regular local content reports and other specially commissioned reports examining local industry participation levels in the State.
Local content reports
In the past, a large proportion of the goods and services used by resource projects were sourced locally. While this is still true for many types of projects and purchases, changing market conditions have meant that local content levels are falling in some areas - particularly steel fabrication and engineering and design.
In 2011, the Department of Commerce commissioned several reports in cooperation with other industry groups and experts.
The Modular Fabrication in the Resources Sector in Western Australia: Current Practices and Strategies for Improvement report, produced jointly with the Industry Capability Network of Western Australia, identified the gaps in the local modular fabrication industry and proposed strategies to assist local companies tendering for such projects.
The Assessment of the Engineering Design Capability and Capacity in the Oil and Gas Sector in Western Australia report, by Dr Martin West of Curtin University, examined the ability of the State’s industry to supply to offshore energy developments.
