Indigenous Procurement Policy – IPP

The Australian Commonwealth Government established the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) on 1 July 2015.

The IPP was established to leverage the Commonwealth’s annual multi-billion procurement spend to drive demand for Indigenous goods and services, stimulate Indigenous economic development and grow the Indigenous business sector.

The IPP has three main parts:

  • A target number of contracts that need to be awarded to Indigenous businesses by 2020.
  • A mandatory set-aside for remote contracts and contracts valued between $80,000 – $200,000.
  • Minimum Indigenous participation requirements in contracts valued at or above $7.5m in certain industries.
