What is the Indigenous Procurement Policy?

The primary purpose of the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) is to stimulate Indigenous entrepreneurship, business and economic development, providing Indigenous Australians with more opportunities to participate in the economy.

Prior to the implementation of the policy, Indigenous enterprises secured limited business from Commonwealth procurement. The policy is intended to significantly increase the rate of purchasing from Indigenous enterprises.

How the IPP Works?

How the IPP works:

  1. Annual targets for the volume and value of contracts to be awarded to Indigenous enterprises by the Commonwealth and each Portfolio.

  2. The Mandatory Set Aside (MSA) requires that Indigenous businesses be given an opportunity to demonstrate value for money before a general approach to market. The MSA applies to procurements to be delivered in remote Australia and for all other procurements wholly delivered in Australia valued between $80,000‑$200,000 (GST inclusive).

  3. Indigenous employment and business participation targets apply to contracts wholly delivered in Australia valued at $7.5 million or more in 19 industries, known as Mandatory Minimum Indigenous Participation Requirements (MMR).  

 

Exemption 16 of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules allows portfolios to procure directly with Indigenous small to medium size enterprises, provided the enterprise can demonstrate value for money.

Reconciliation Action Plans

 

RAP's a key document to start the conversation with an Indigenous Business. Where you have an existing RAP at your organization it is highly likely your organization has  published its commitment to encourage procurement from Indigenous Business aligned with the principles of Indigenous Procurement Policy.

Reconciliation Australia’s RAP Framework provides organisations with a structured approach to advance reconciliation.  There are four types of RAP that an organisation can develop: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, Elevate. Each type of RAP is designed to suit an organisation at different stages of their reconciliation journey.

What is a RAP?

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement.

No matter where your organisation is on its reconciliation journey, there is a RAP to suit.  Schools and early learning services can develop a RAP through Narragunnawali. Workplaces can be supported to develop one of four types of RAP— Reflect, Innovate, Stretch or Elevate.

Workplaces

A RAP is a strategic document that supports an organisation’s business plan. It includes practical actions that will drive an organisation’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.

The RAP Program contributes to advancing the five dimensions of reconciliation by supporting organisations to develop respectful relationships and create meaningful opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Each of the four RAP types (Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, Elevate) set out the minimum elements required from your organisation to build strong relationships, respect and opportunities within your organisation and community.

Schools and Early Learning Services

Schools and early learning services can develop a RAP through Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education.

Narragunnawali supports all schools and early learning services in Australia to foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions.

The Narragunnawali platform is free to access and hosts a wealth of professional learning and curriculum resources to support the development, implementation and management of RAPs in schools and early learning services.
