What is an Unsolicited Proposal?
When a business or not-for-profit organisation approaches the government with a proposal that hasn't formally been requested, it’s known as an unsolicited proposal.
The Government of South Australia welcomes unsolicited proposals from the community. We know we don’t have all the ideas and we want to work with the private sector to identify new and innovative ways to drive our state’s development.
Unsolicited proposals can cover a wide range of areas, including:
- the delivery of services to or on behalf of government
- the provision of infrastructure
- access to government assets
- requests for government support (financial, regulatory or other) to undertake an activity
To ensure the government’s assessment process is transparent and protects the intellectual property rights of applicants, a set of Guidelines for the Assessment of Unsolicited Proposals has been developed.
