The Market-Led Proposals (MLP) framework is about leveraging public sector investment and unlocking private sector investment and innovation to support good economic and social outcomes for Queenslanders.
What is a MLP?
A MLP is a proposal from the private sector seeking an exclusive commercial arrangement with government to deliver a service or infrastructure to meet a community need. MLPs always include a role for government such as access to government land, assets, information or networks. In return, MLPs are expected to provide benefits to government and/or the Queensland community. MLPs are well suited to projects which are low cost and low risk to the Queensland Government and can be funded by the private sector, such as on a user pays basis.
A successful MLP will result in government contracting directly with a proponent so there must be a clear justification that doing so is in the public interest. For this reason, proposals are assessed against robust criteria and progress through a staged assessment process.
A dedicated MLP team in the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning works with proponents throughout the process.
We are seeking proposals that meet the MLP criteria and we’re ready to engage with those who are ready to take advantage of the opportunity.
