Market-led proposals

The Market-Led Proposals (MLP) framework is a signature initiative of the government’s economic plan to create jobs and stimulate the economy. It is a way to harness good ideas, private sector finance and entrepreneurship and make projects that benefit Queenslanders happen sooner by contracting exclusively with proponents rather than through a competitive tender process.

Our efficient, staged and interactive assessment process, coordinated by an experienced group of Treasury staff, removes the guess work and makes it easy for proponents to align their proposals, time and commitment with government interest and commitment.

We are actively seeking proposals that meet the MLP criteria. We are ready to engage with those who are ready to take advantage of the opportunity.

What is a market-led proposal?

A market-led proposal is a proposal from the private sector seeking an exclusive commercial arrangement with government to provide a service or infrastructure to meet a community need.

Market-led proposals include a role for government such as access to government land, assets, information or networks.

If the government is satisfied that the detailed proposal demonstrates that the project will deliver good outcomes and value for money, it will grant the proponent an exclusive mandate to deliver on its proposal, rather than engage in a competitive process for the service or infrastructure.
