KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — MRI MACHINE
505. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I indicate that I have two questions
today, and one on behalf of Hon Colin Holt.
I refer to question without notice
389 asked by me last week about the MRI suite construction at Kalgoorlie Health
Campus and the recent advertising of the tender through Tenders WA.
(1) Given that a major
construction project in Esperance was awarded to a Perth contractor just last
week, will the state government adjust the local content weighting of this
project so that Kalgoorlie–Boulder companies are better able to compete
for this contract?
(2) What is the
anticipated construction time line for this project, given that the state
government has missed its deadline for construction to begin in the first half
(3) Can the minister please table a copy
of the tender document for this project?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) The local
content weighting for the MRI project at the Kalgoorlie hospital has already
been increased to 25 per cent to maximise local business participation. The
Department of Finance advises that of the eight contracts awarded by the head
contractor for the Esperance TAFE project, all have been awarded to either
local or regional businesses.
construction project is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2021.
(3) I table the
attached tender documentation.
