Last Friday, 11 May 2018, Murawin's Carol Vale and Matthew Hammond attended the launch of the NSW Government's Aboriginal Procurement Policy (APP), which was held at the new premises of the NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce (NSWICC) at Redfern. Carol has recently joined their Board of Directors, and so was very excited to attend this launch.
The APP aims to grow Aboriginal businesses in the state, and support an additional 3,000 Aboriginal jobs. The policy is yet to be released, but includes a 3% target for all NSW Government goods and services contracts being awarded to Aboriginal businesses by 2021.
