The State Government is committed to engaging with suppliers who meet their employment and industrial obligations.

The Supplier Wage Audit (SWA) unit is responsible for auditing suppliers to government to ensure compliance with employment obligations under applicable industrial laws and instruments.

The SWA provides additional assurance to government that suppliers are meeting their employment obligations, which provides benefits for employees of suppliers and suppliers alike.

From 11 November 2022, the SWA is authorised to conduct audits to verify compliance and refer any non-compliance to the appropriate Regulator.

If you are a public sector entity the Department of Finance website provides guidance materials and contractual model clauses for public sector entities to utilise when procuring goods and services.

If you are a supplier and require example model clauses that may be useful to utilise for insertion into your construction contract refer to the Example subcontract clauses for construction contracts publication.
