Indigenous Procurement Policy
What's It All About?
Commonwealth buyers can purchase directly from Indigenous businesses for contracts of any size and value using the Indigenous business exemption (Exemption 17) in the Commonwealth Procurement Rules. Indigenous business must still demonstrate value for money, but this can be done through a simpler quote process and as a Supply Nation Certified business we are sure to give Confidence When It Counts knowing we have been fully vetted as an Indigenous owned and controlled viable business.
THE POLICY HAS THREE PARTS:
A target number of contracts that need to be awarded to Indigenous businesses.
A mandatory set-aside of contracts for Indigenous businesses to apply in certain situations.
Mandatory minimum contractual requirements for Indigenous employment and/or Indigenous supplier use applying to certain Commonwealth contracts (valued at greater than $7.5m).
