McGowan Government Enhances Aboriginal Procurement Policy
In 2018, Western Australian Labour Premier Mark McGowan introduced a landmark Aboriginal Procurement policy. The objective of the policy was to improve outcomes for Aboriginal businesses in the state with targeted measures to increase contract awards.
From policy implementation through to the end of 2020, 533 contracts have been awarded, equalling more than $379 million of value for Aboriginal businesses.
This month, the policy has been expanded to further leverage the success of the initial program.
Key to the expansion includes an increase in contract award targets to Aboriginal businesses to 4% by 2023-24.
The new iteration of the Aboriginal Procurement Policy is available here:
It’s encouraging to see further progression in government procurement practices in Western Australia, driving better outcomes for its citizens. We hope this news will provide inspiration to other governments around the world, on the positive impacts of good government procurement policy and process.
