OCCI Business Support Program

WHAT IS THE BUSINESS SUPPORT PROGRAM (BSP)?

funded by the Pilbara Development Commission through Royalties for Regions, the OCCI Business Support Program (BSP) is designed to deliver a holistic and tailored service to local Onslow businesses enabling them to develop capacity and capability to successfully supply services and products to industry and government.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE BSP?

the BSP is open to any Onslow business that can demonstrate a level of local content - such as:

WHAT DOES BSP CONSIST OF?

The BSP consists of four interrelated strategies including:

1. Determining supply and product demand and opportunity

Determination and identification of existing or potential service and product delivery demand within the Onslow region - including Wheatstone and ANSIA (and related projects).

2. Local business supply and product delivery capacity (current & potential)

Matching local business to areas of service and product demand. Where appropriate, facilitation of business opportunity arrangements between respective parties.

3. Local business engagement

Determination and identification o existing or potential capacity and capability of local business (diagnostic testing) to meet identified supply, product and pre-qualification requirements.

4. Local business development

Tailored support for building and or expanding the existing or potential capacity or local business to meet any supply or product delivery gaps.

STEP 3:

Once you have identified the areas you would like to improve and or develop, a plan will be created that will match your needs to specialized consultants.

STEP 4:

Once you are happy with your plan, you will be required to sign an agreement with the OCCI. This will outline the expectations - in terms of commitment and outcomes - for you and the OCCI.

HOW DO I WORK WITH THE SPECIALISED CONSULTANTS?

The OCCI has a data base of consultants in a range of fields (social media, insurances, business planning, accounting, human resources, HSE) that will work with you on a one on one basis - or if required - with your team.

How it "works" for you will be outlined in your agreement (remote, face-to-face, on-line). The idea of the consultant is to teach you the process as well as deliver an outcome - so once your agreement is complete - you will have developed the skills.

WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY?

What you discuss and develop with your consultant/s is completely confidential. The plan and agreement will remain strictly between you and the OCCI. Any data required by the OCCI (for reporting purposes) will be clearly articulated in your agreement.

HOW LONG DOES THE BSP GO FOR?

The OCCI has funding for 2 years (from August 2017) to run the BSP. How long your BSP journey goes for depends on you - as outlined in your plan.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

How much it costs will depend on what is in your plan, what level of support is required from BSP consultants and will be assessed on a case by case situation.

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?

This will be outlined on your agreement and will be dependent on terms & conditions of the consultants.
