Industry Capability Network (ICN)

The role of the ICNBack to Top

The primary role of the Industry Capability Network (ICN) is to assist buyers, both government and non-government, to identify competitive local suppliers of goods and services.

The ICN also offers suppliers a range of services, including assisting with the preparation of tenders and advising on opportunities for new or increased production. A full list of services offered to suppliers is located at > Winning Government Business > Finding Business > How to Get Known.

The services offered by the ICN are both free and confidential.

It is suggested that, before finalising the procurement documentation, ICN be consulted to advise on local capability and to review the capabilities and skills required by prospective suppliers to ensure that the requirement do not unnecessarily preclude Tasmanian businesses from bidding.

In order to provide the ICN with sufficient time to identify suitable local suppliers and review the specification, agencies must communicate with the ICN in a timely manner.
