Capture WA program overview

The Capture WA Program is designed to reduce duplication and maximise sharing of government location assets across the state of Western Australia.

Planning, recording and acquiring the information through one channel ensures the best use of government resources.

Benefits of participating in the Capture WA program:

  • improves cross government collaboration
  • eliminates the need for individual contractual arrangements
  • ensures Intellectual Property remains within the state
  • panel offers a diverse range of pre-qualified suppliers
  • data captured to industry standards.

For more information, or to promote awareness of the Capture WA program among colleagues, download the Capture WA brochure.

Capture WA program options

Any Western Australian state or local government organisation can request quotes for location-based data to be acquired through the capture program.

All requests can be submitted via the online Capture WA Register or email capturewa@landgate.wa.gov.au for assistance.

Options include:

Self-funded or jointly funded data acquisition - Landgate can provide assistance with the technical requirements and will coordinate the formal quote and procurement process in consultation with agencies.  Requests can be submitted any time.  

Requests for informal quotes - Not sure what your capture will cost? This service can be used to support budget planning cycles and can be requested at any time.

Notification of independent captures – the Capture WA panel is not mandatory so some agencies may procure through other processes.  We just ask that you let us know so opportunities to share the data with other agencies might be explored.

Capture Program Planning - limited funds are available for the capture of critical location information assets where common needs across agencies can be identified as a priority.  A call out is conducted towards the end of February each year.

Capture WA contract

A whole-of-State panel contract with a range of pre-qualified suppliers are available. We provide a flexible range of options, faster procurement process and can assist with technical or product advice.

The Capture WA is advertised recurrently on the Tenders WA website. This provides new supplies the opportunity to be qualified under the panel contract, and current contractors the opportunity to apply for qualification in additional categories.

If you are a supplier and want to qualify for the Panel, please contact us via capturewa@landgate.wa.gov.au for details.
