Business Support – Dampier Peninsula
The sealing of the Cape Leveque Road will really ‘open up’ the Dampier Peninsula. The benefits of easier access through the wet season, coupled with increased economic opportunities have been balanced against increased visitor numbers and the impacts on cultural sites, food stocks and community and visitor safety.
Morrgul has a contract with the Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development (DPIRD) to support Aboriginal people establish and grow successful businesses in the Dampier Peninsula region. The DPIRD contract, titled “Dampier Peninsula Activation Programme” will directly support communities, family groups and individuals. The aim is to build new and grow existing enterprises to capitalise on more visitation to the Dampier Peninsula. Businesses will also be able to take advantage of the new infrastructure and amenities to be built, effectively unlocking the economic business opportunities arising from the sealing of the road.
Morrgul’s goal will be to assist clients to fulfil their economic aspirations and gain economic independence.
Existing businesses will receive support to capitalise on opportunities
New businesses will be identified and viability assessed

Procurement Advisory Service
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.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development works with Morrgul to support the Aboriginal Procurement Advisory Service. This service helps Aboriginal businesses 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? 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 an 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.

Business Capability Building Service
The State government recognise that employment and wealth creation are key to economic independence. By supporting Aboriginal businesses to compete for more government contracts and setting targets for the percentage of contracts to be awarded to Aboriginal businesses each year, a message has been sent to both Aboriginal businesses and tender initiating agencies. However, the setting of targets alone isn’t enough.
To help build the capacity of Aboriginal businesses to tender for government contracts, Morrgul Pty Ltd was awarded the Aboriginal Business capability Building Services Contract for the Kimberley.
