Additional Funding for Qld Employers
Tuesday, 09 January 2018 09:38

The Queensland Government has announced additional employer incentives, as promised in the recent election campaign.

“Ms Fentiman said more will be done to support employment opportunities for Queenslanders in 2018.

“We know there are a lot of families still doing it tough after the downturn in the resources sector and we will be ramping up our efforts to support employment and training opportunities for people in 2018.

“I am pleased that, from 1 January, the Government is offering payments of up to $20,000 for businesses to take on Mature Age Workers, through our Back to Work program and on Wednesday I announced that we will be bringing round two of Youth Boost forward.

Youth unemployment is down across Queensland with Cairns leading the way by halving their youth unemployment rate.

“This outstanding result can be attributed to vital programs like Youth Boost, where 1 in 5 Youth Boost payments went to Cairns,” Ms Fentiman said.

Importantly the gap between regional and South East Queensland unemployment rates narrowed significantly over the last year from 2.3 points in November 2016 to 1.4 points in November 2017.

“This is why we are partnering with businesses in the regions, to work with them to be able to grow and bridge the gap between our regions and cities.” - END

Notice of Extension to Current Contracts for Prequalified Suppliers

Council wishes to advise that current Prequalified Supplier Contracts have been extended on a month by month basis until 30 June 2018. The purpose of this extension is to allow time to review the process behind the renewal and including the ongoing use of Prequalified Suppliers contracts.

Council is undertaking a review of the Prequalified Suppliers Registers process. The current review will move toward the ability for Council to implement a longer contract period; greater flexibility to add and remove suppliers; renewal of suppliers every 12 months; and revising the Prequalified Suppliers Registers categories to better meet Council’s requirements and for ease of identification for Council Officers to meet service needs.

Please continue to monitor Council’s website for updates on the next round of Prequalified Suppliers contract.
