Answered on


389. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the minister's media statement of 12 April 2019 regarding the construction of the $6.3 million MRI suite at Kalgoorlie Health Campus. It states ''� with construction expected to follow in the first half of 2020''.

(1) Can the minister please provide an update on the status of the Kalgoorlie MRI suite construction process?

(2) Has the tender been let for the construction of the MRI suite, and what is the status of the tender process?

(3) Is any local content weighting included in this tender; and, if so, can the minister please provide details?

(4) Will the government commit to fast-tracking this project to provide an economic boost to the Kalgoorlie–Boulder community and support COVID-19 recovery?


I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1)–(2) The construction tender for the Kalgoorlie Health Campus MRI suite is due to be released on Tenders WA next week.

(3) There will be standard price preferences and regional business percentages applied to the submitted prices, as per the Buy Local policy.

(4) The project will be completed as soon as practicable. This does not account for any unanticipated need for the WA health system to respond to the COVID-19 situation, which may impact on the proposal.
