Areas for potential growth include management advisory services, computer services, software, and information technology. These areas are shown as awarding between zero and two per cent of contract to Aboriginal businesses, showing there are opportunities for Aboriginal businesses to expand into these markets under the APP.
The APP aims to award two per cent of WA government contracts for goods, services, community services and works to Aboriginal businesses by the end of June 2020, and three per cent by the end of June in 2021.
IPS Management Consultants are currently offering an Aboriginal Business Capability Building program across the South West, Peel, Perth and Great Southern regions, funded by the WA Department of Finance. The program provides free workshops and business advisory sessions to support the growth of Aboriginal businesses, and assist in tendering for government work.
