The Aboriginal Procurement Policy (APP) will aim for Aboriginal-owned businesses to be awarded at least three percent of the total number of domestic contracts for goods and services issued by NSW Government agencies by 2021.
In conjunction with the existing Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APIC) policy, the APP will aim to support an estimated 3,000 full-time equivalent employment opportunities for Aboriginal people through NSW Government procurement activities by 2021.
The APP supports the NSW Government Plan for Aboriginal Affairs, OCHRE, and is a key deliverable under the Aboriginal Economic Development Framework.
