What is the Indigenous Procurement Policy?

Where to look? National Indigenous Australians Agency

The Commonwealth government's Indigenous Procurement Policy is intended to significantly increase the rate of government purchasing from First Nations enterprises.

It aims to provide First Nations with more opportunities to participate in the economy.

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

First Nations 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).
