Indigenous Community Engagement in the Supply Chain

Indigenous Community

The task for Indigenous communities and business to engage with local and major project supply chains has in the past been challenging. This has not been helped by broad brush programs and assistance that added very little to the commercial capability of local Indigenous businesses or the sustainable growth of the community.

There are many stages and activities in preparing for, and entering the supply chain. From the initial stages of identifying opportunity and making a plan, to the mid stage of building capabilities and processes that are needed and finally, providing the skills to commercially approach, confidently work in and have the support to be successful in the supply chain.

It takes a strong and experienced team with understanding and respect on both ends of the supply chain. We not only develop and deliver a range of activities to target real and available opportunities in the supply chain, but also have the connections in the market to advise the most suitable pathways for each Indigenous community and business.
