Procurement from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Organisations

ACT Government directorates and agencies are encouraged to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned businesses from the Canberra Business Region Joint Organisation (CBRJO) in their procurement opportunities. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses can be identified from Supply Nation's Indigenous Business Direct register.

Supply Nation was established in 2009 to support the business interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.  It manages a national directory of bona fide Indigenous businesses with a view to connecting them with government and private corporations. An Indigenous business can be categorised as either a certified supplier (at least 51 per cent indigenous owned, managed and controlled) or a registered supplier (50 per cent indigenous owned). More information about Supply Nation is available at Supply Nation Search.    

ACT Government directorates and agencies wishing to engage an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned business must do this through the usual ACT Government procurement processes.

The following is a list of known CBRJO Indigenous businesses, identified from the Supply Nation register:

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses not registered or certified by Supply Nation that provide goods, services or works in the ACT may contact Procurement and Capital Works if they wish to be listed on this page. While Procurement and Capital Works will conduct a brief check of the businesses’ claims, agencies will need to conduct their own due diligence to confirm the credentials of organisations listed here:
