Procurement changes extended

Friday, December 11, 2020

In July, the Government announced changes to the way local Aboriginal owned businesses can win contracts with government agencies in 2020.

These measures have now been extended and will be in place until May 31st 2021.

These changes include:

  • No need for a tender application if the contract is less than $250,000 (agencies can purchase directly from your business)
  • Tenders include projects up to $500,000
  • Written quotes only for contracts between $250,000 – $500,000, no tender is required

These amendments provide more opportunities for WA Aboriginal owned businesses in 2021.
