This workshop provides Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander businesses with the skills and information to help them win procurement opportunities.


Supported by: Indigenous Business Australia IBA
Event Type: Workshop
Event Cost: Free

Business opportunities are rapidly increasing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Businesses are already working with Indigenous suppliers in meeting their corporate responsibilities.

As part of its Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP), the Australian Government has committed to awarding three per cent of new domestic contracts to Indigenous suppliers by 2019–20. Within the first two years of this policy's launch, contracts to the value of $594 million have been awarded to 956 Indigenous businesses.

While winning contracts is a well-tested way to grow your business, it is very competitive and the process itself can be daunting for the unprepared.

IBA runs workshops for Indigenous business owners who would like to know how they can best position their business and pitch in response to these procurement opportunities.

During the workshop you will:

  • gain a better understanding of the IPP’s targets, contracts and minimum requirements
  • learn how to best position your business to respond to contract opportunities
  • assess your business potential in terms of its capability, competitiveness and supply readiness
  • design or refine your business capability statements and pitches
