Are you an Aboriginal business owner?
Want to know more about supplying goods or services to government agencies?
Morrgul can help your business make the most of the opportunities.
The Western Australian Government encourages its agencies to buy goods and services from registered Aboriginal businesses where possible, to grow the economy and create jobs for Aboriginal people.
Morrgul operates the Aboriginal Procurement Advisory Service to help Aboriginal business access procurement opportunities across regional Western Australia.
IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT POLICY CHANGES IMPACTING ABORIGINAL BUSINESS
Have you heard about the Aboriginal Procurement Policy which was announced by the Minister for Finance on 19 December 2017 and is due to commence on 1 July 2018? This Policy includes mandatory targets for Government contracting with Aboriginal businesses and will create new opportunities for the Aboriginal business sector.
Additionally, there have been changes to the State Supply Commission’s Open and Effective Competition policy. In simple terms, these changes make it easier for government agencies to buy goods and services from Aboriginal businesses directly. This “procurement flexibility” enables Local and State Government procurement officers the ability to request a quote or tender response from Aboriginal business without going out to a competitive tender process. However, an Aboriginal business must be registered on the Aboriginal Business Directory WA to be eligible to participate.
Visit the Government of Western Australia website for details on the Aboriginal Business Initiative.
