For each financial year from 2017-18 until 2020-21 (inclusive), and in tabular form, please detail contracts awarded to predominantly Western Australian owned and operated defence industry enterprises which were facilitated by the direct involvement and advocacy of Defence West and/or other portfolio agencies for which the Minister has responsibility by:
(a) broad capability domain;
(b) industrial capability descriptor;
(c) region;
(d) value; and
(e) new FTE positions created?

Answered on 30 November 2021

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) advises that the State Government is not a signatory to these contracts and does not have access to derive this data. As a conservative estimate, based on publicly reported data, JTSI advises as follows:

e) Insufficient information is available to determine FTE creation.

Data is reported by calendar year as there were no reportable records for 2017 when Defence West was in development.

Work is currently underway to measure the value of the Western Australian Defence Industry since this data was baselined and Defence West was established in 2017.
