Services relating to cleaning of public infrastructure. The scheme is complementary to the Cleaning Services Contract to help meet increased demand arising from the COVID-19 crisis, and support jobs.


The NSW Government announced on 17 March 2020 a $2.3 billion health boost and stimulus package in response to COVID-19 that will support jobs, healthcare, small business and the community.

As part of the stimulus package the Government has further committed $250 million to support the employment of extra cleaners of public infrastructure.

In addition to scaling up cleaning services supplied by current cleaning supply arrangements including the whole-of-government Cleaning Services Contract, we are seeking capable cleaning companies to supply the increased demand for cleaning services arising from the COVID-19 crisis.
