Aboriginal Procurement Policy to be extended

Thursday, 04 February 2021

The McGowan Government has announced it will extend the Aboriginal Procurement Policy for another 3 years. So far the policy has exceeded all its targets and has been extremely successful.

The policy will have updated targets for the next 3 years so it can include more opportunities for Aboriginal businesses. Aboriginal businesses have already been awarded 413 contracts worth $339 million under the policy.

Currently under the policy 3% of all government contracts are to be awarded to Aboriginal businesses. Under the new extended policy, this target is to be increased to 4% by the end of its sixth year.

Morrgul is actively supporting this Government initiative  to achieve greater success. Since July 2020, Morrgul has provided 31 Aboriginal businesses with procurement support.
