Publication author(s):
National Indigenous Australians Agency
Publication abstract:

The IPP sets targets for Commonwealth agencies on buying from First Nations businesses.

This helps to raise the level of buying the government does with First Nations businesses.

The Australian Government is considering options to reform the IPP. This discussion paper seeks views from First Nations business owners and other stakeholders on a number of potential IPP reforms and seeks new ideas.

The purposes of the proposed reforms are:

  • to create more opportunities for First Nations businesses through Commonwealth procurement processes
  • to contribute more meaningfully to the outcomes set out in:
    • the National Agreement on Closing the Gap
    • the government’s Buy Australian Plan.

Responses to this discussion paper will inform the government’s decision on IPP reform.
