For minority and women supplier diversity business entrepreneurs

Supply Nation welcomed the announcement from the Australian Government on the new Indigenous Procurement Policy guidelines, replacing the Indigenous Opportunities Policy for all government contracts from 1st July 2015.

Supply Nation’s Indigenous Business Direct Australia’s premier listing of Indigenous businesses has been nominated by the Government as the first point of reference for procurement officers when a contract is available for tender.

Supply Nation CEO Laura Berry believes the announcement is a very positive development for the Indigenous business sector in Australia.

“Supply Nation is Australia’s first stop for Corporate and Government buyers when looking to procure from Indigenous business,” Berry said. “The Board and I are pleased to see Indigenous business purchasing targets come into effect for Commonwealth agencies and hope that corporate Australia follows suit. Supply Nation is responding by expanding our reach via the launch of Indigenous Business Direct on July 1st. I strongly encourage all Indigenous businesses with 50% ownership and above to register on this free, public directory. We will continue to work with our members and certified Indigenous business suppliers to connect, collaborate and drive win-win opportunities as we move forward with this next step on the Supply Nation journey.
