Guidelines on directly engaging Aboriginal businesses

These guidelines explain how agencies can engage a registered Aboriginal business directly, without undertaking a competitive process.

This guide will direct your agency in:

  • where to find registered Aboriginal businesses
  • what key policies to refer to
  • ensuring value for money
  • whether a formal contract is required
  • how the Aboriginal Procurement Policy is related to directly engaging an Aboriginal business

It also includes a flowchart to help you make your decision.
