• Aboriginal Business Procurement

    Notice board

    The State Government is committed to supporting Aboriginal owned businesses and organisations through the establishment of the Aboriginal Procurement Policy (the Policy). From 1 July 2018, government departments will be required to award contracts to registered Aboriginal businesses, consistent with progressive targets increasing to three per cent. The targets will apply to all government agencies and government trading enterprises when purchasing goods, services, community services and works.

    Visit the Aboriginal Procurement Policy web page for a copy of the Policy and the supporting guides.

    The Department of Finance is hosting an Aboriginal Business Expo on the 29th March 2018 at Optus Stadium. This expo will provide an opportunity for the Aboriginal business sector to showcase the range of quality goods, services, community services and works available. It will also enable the sector and government buyers to commence building relationships.
