Work won by local businesses through Frankston City Council’s Buy Local program has tipped the $20 million mark less than two years since its launch.

The hugely successful program assists local businesses secure work on major projects within the municipality such as the Frankston Hospital expansion, the South East Water headquarters construction and the city’s new Aquatic Centre, PARC.

And the news only gets better for Frankston businesses with the introduction of the Frankston Industry Participation Plan (FIPP).

FIPP is an assessable component in the procurement process at Frankston City Council for contracts and tenders of $100,000 or more.

The component contributes a five per cent weighting to the assessment outcome.

“Basically all tenderers and contractors will need to complete a local content and social procurement statement embedded within their tender documentation,” Frankston City Mayor Darrel Taylor said.

“It will demonstrate what goods and services they sourced within Frankston and what local employment outcomes there may be.

“It is important to us that contractors working for Council are also seen supporting our community.”

Cr Taylor said all businesses have access to a range of business development programs offered by Frankston City Council to assist them in completing these submissions.

“We have had significant success with our business programs in Frankston and we will continue to fight hard to ensure our local businesses have every chance to prosper.”

Businesses in Frankston City are encouraged to register on tender alert site ICN Gateway at http://gateway.icn.org.au
