ACT Government Secure Local Jobs

In the ACT only businesses that support their workers and meet the requirements of the Secure Local Jobs Code will be able to tender for ACT Government Business. 

Businesses tendering for construction, cleaning, security or traffic management work need to meet workplace standards in the Secure Local Jobs Code and have a Secure Local Jobs Code Certificate. They also need to complete a Labour Relations, Training and Workplace Equity Plan if the value of work is more than $25,000.

From 7 November 2019, businesses that want to provide services worth more than $200,000 to the ACT Government will also need a Code Certificate and Plan.

Secure Local Jobs Code

The Code started on 15 January 2019. It sets out workplace standards for our service providers, including:

  • pay and employment conditions
  • insurance, tax and superannuation
  • health and safety, including training and inductions
  • collective bargaining, freedom of association and representation rights.
  • Secure Local Jobs Code Certificate

A Secure Local Jobs Code Certificate confirms a business meets the standards in the Code. Businesses need a Code Certificate before they tender and for the duration of the project. Businesses will need to engage an approved auditor to assess whether they meet Secure Local Jobs requirements and can apply for a Code Certificate.

Labour Relations, Training and Workplace Equity Plan

Businesses tendering for construction, cleaning, security or traffic management work worth more than $25,000 will need to complete a Labour Relations, Training and Workplace Equity Plan.

From 7 November 2019, businesses that want to provide services worth more than $200,000 to the ACT Government will also need to complete one.

The plan includes information on how they will comply with the Code and how they support employment security, health and wellbeing, diversity, and career development for workers. The plan must be developed in consultation with employees and include a statement about how this was done. The successful tenderer will need to operate in alignment with the plan for the duration of the project.
