The Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) provides a range of services to support small businesses throughout WA. The CEO of the SBDC is also WA’s Small Business Commissioner.
In early 2020, new legislation was passed expanding the authority of the Small Business Commissioner to, among other things:
- Compel head contractors on government projects to provide documents and other things, during investigations.
- Shield subcontractors from retribution for lodging complaints, by protecting the identity of the complainant.
- Conduct inquiries based on industry intelligence.
- Make recommendations to government and government entities.
Please read the brochure and contact the SBDC to see if they can help you in matter involving the construction industry.
