One of the key priorities for the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is the development of, and investment in, Australian industry. The focus is to improve the economic viability and competitive advantage of Australian industry, including the identified growth sectors, and supporting the growth and performance of SMEs.
In achieving this priority, the department has a number of requirements for industry and market research and analysis as described below. As such, the department is seeking tenders from suitable providers of industry and business level market research, data, and intelligence and analysis reports. The scope of the reports shall be relevant to Australian industry and businesses, including SMEs, and shall provide meaningful industry research and business information for use in a range of activities including policy development, program delivery and diagnostic analysis of businesses, markets and industry segments.
The department provides briefings to the Minister which includes industry sectoral briefs, data cards, company briefs, industry briefs, business case studies, industry for which it sources from various domestic and international industry market research and analysis reports. The industry reports are used in departmental briefings contributing to its strategic direction in encouraging growth in Australian industries. The department also develops policy, provides policy advice and designs programs to implement Australian government policy particularly in industry, innovation and science. An understanding of Australian industry is important in performing this work and the industry reports will be used to inform our work in these areas.
The Entrepreneurs' Programme is the Australian Government’s flagship initiative for business competitiveness and productivity. It is delivered through a network of experienced Business Advisers and Facilitators who have relevant private sector experience to assist businesses to improve business practices, become more competitive, and take advantage of growth and collaboration opportunities in order to build the business’ capacity to trade in Australian and/or international markets. The Programme also provides assistance to commercialise novel products, services and processes as well as to identify knowledge gaps that may be preventing business growth. Opportunities are also available for Australian start-ups to achieve commercial success in international markets by helping them develop their business capabilities via the Incubator Support service.
Within the Entrepreneurs’ Programme there is a need for the provision of information on the external environment from critical industry market research and analysis reports, including industry benchmarking data that we make available to our Business Advisers and Facilitators for the Business Management services.
