Indigenous Employment and Supplier-Use Infrastructure Framework (2019)
The Australian Government is committed to improving Indigenous economic development by increasing Indigenous employment opportunities and supporting the Indigenous business community through a whole-of-government approach to advance the Council of Australian Government’s (COAG) Closing the Gap targets. The Indigenous Employment and Supplier-Use Infrastructure Framework (the Framework) aims to increase Indigenous employment and supplier-use in the delivery of land transport infrastructure projects funded or co-funded by the Australian Government. The Framework applies to projects receiving $7.5 million or more in Australian Government contributions (and in some circumstances for projects below $7.5 million with strong potential to support Indigenous participation) under the next National Partnership Agreement on Land Transport Infrastructure Projects (the NPA) which will come into effect from 1 July 2019. More information on Project Thresholds and Exemptions is at Section 9.
