The Biz Secure Program provides support for Territory businesses to enhance the security of their premises against the risk of break-ins, using Territory enterprises to do the work.
Eligible individual Territory businesses can access up to $15,000 to make a range of permanent security improvements to their premises.
Eligible clusters of businesses, such as small shopping complexes can also apply for up to $50,000.
If you are approved for eligible works, a voucher will be issued to you to either carry out ‘standard improvement works’ (see below) or a security audit.
The cost of the security audit is covered by the program (up to $2,000 for individual businesses and up to $7,000 for a cluster of businesses).
The co-contribution eligible works with a security audit for individual businesses and cluster applications is 50:50.
Standard improvement works
To enable businesses to carry out physical security improvement jobs more quickly, there is now a list of pre-approved standard improvements that can be funded without the need for a security audit.
If you are eligible, the following standard improvement works do not require a security audit:
- access door repairs
- access door replacement with heavy-duty, secure alternatives
- lock works and hardware
- security screens
- window replacement with more secure alternatives
- glass replacement with secure alternatives
- lockable fencing.
The co-contribution for standard improvement works for individual businesses and cluster applications is 25:75 (business:government).
Suppliers interested in registering to carry out the security works through the Biz Secure program can apply online - apply to register as a security supplier now.
