Procurement Australasia Limited launched its Indigenous Procurement Policy in 2017, and since then, has continued to develop our business and cultural ties to our first-Australians.
We have been proud to take the lead in supporting Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) through a series of indigenous community start-up meetings and are now working with Ngara Procurement towards extending training services to young indigenous business leaders.
Procurement Australasia has now included ‘indigenous business supply’ as an integral part of our Social and Ethical Procurement Strategy, together with high-agenda issues like Modern Slavery, Sustainability and Environmental Impact.
Key Areas of Indigenous Relationships We Continue To Develop:
SUPPLY NATION MEMBERSHIP
This allows Procurement Australasia to engage with indigenous businesses and leaders at all levels.
This is a strategic alliance that provides access to over 4,700 indigenous businesses via FACCI (the First Australians Chamber of Commerce & Industry).
INDIGENOUS PROCUREMENT POLICY (IPP)
Supporting indigenous and other businesses to develop indigenous supply into all levels of government and reporting businesses across Australia.
SOCIAL & ETHICAL PROCUREMENT
Engaging supply-chain partners like Blue-Sky Constructions, Ngara Procurement and Nallawilli Well-being to deliver real indigenous services at a high level.
