Smart Work Hub Pilot Program
The NSW Government is currently inviting expressions of interest from organisations or consortia that are in a strong position to establish and operate pilot Smart Work Hubs.
A 'Smart Work Hub' is a facility or space which offers workers an alternative to either working in their normal place of work or working from home.
Smart Work Hubs are distinct from a serviced office in that they aim to offer workers an alternative office space close to their home residence, and provide space for workers from different organisations which allow users to connect with each other.
The pilot projects will explore how modern management practices and innovative work cultures can help grow knowledge based industries, support flexible work practices and offer commuters an alternative work location closer to home.
Financial assistance will be made available to successful applicants or consortia to establish and operate a pilot Smart Work Hub, to be determined by a two-stage competitive public process.
The Smart Work Hub Pilot Program will prioritise funding for Smart Work Hubs located within the Western Sydney and the Central Coast regions due to the potential benefits to large commuter populations.
For more information on the program and competitive public process, please follow this link and download the two documents.
Applications close 9.00 am Tuesday, 28 January 2014.
Questions regarding the Expression of Interest (EOI) documents will be responded to by the contact officer in writing until 5pm Friday 24 January 2014.
For urgent enquiries after this time please call 0409 211 659.
The Smart Work Hub Pilot Program is an initiative under the NSW Economic Development Framework.
