Australian Government Indigenous Procurement Policy (2015 & 2020)
The policy commenced 1 July 2015. It applies to all non-corporate Commonwealth entities subject to the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (CPRs). However, entities that are not required to comply with the CPRs are encouraged to adopt the policy as best practice. 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 requirements for Indigenous employment and and Indigenous supplier use applying to certain Commonwealth contracts.
