We are Supply Nation Certified Indigenous business
Supplier diversity has significant and measurable long term business benefits - the data clearly indicates that diverse supply chains are more sustainable, flexible and innovative.
Government and Corporate organisations of all sizes across Australia are finding that Supply Nation membership is a catalyst for growth and helps procurement teams unlock the potential and value of including Indigenous businesses in their supply chain whilst also helping achieve their Indigenous procurement targets.
As Australia’s largest database of verified Indigenous businesses. Supply Nastion’s Indigenous Business Direct, is mandated by the Federal Government in the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) as the first port of call for procurement officers to search for Indigenous suppliers to fulfill their targets. Outside the IPP, many state and local governments are implementing their own Indigenous procurement targets. Supply Nation membership can support the implementation of those polices through their experienced relationship managers who consult with you to provide training and feedback to internal teams to help them achieve individual and team targets, supplier diversity within their supply chain.
Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium
The Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium (iDiC) was established because of Indigenous owned and controlled businesses seeking to participate in the delivery of long-term Nation building projects. Projects which build sovereign capability and infrastructure, offering longer term contracts and relationships with clients and meaningful participation of the Indigenous business sector. Energised and enthused by the National Innovation and Science Agenda, Indigenous entrepreneurs have rallied together to become a key cog in the supply chain of prime contractors in the Defence Industry. As a supply chain aggregator, the iDiC focuses on identifying business opportunities for its Indigenous business consortium partners. It then presents turnkey solutions providing a de-risked integrated offering to its clients. The iDiC is able to navigate the supply chain requirements of large companies, which are somewhat daunting for small to medium enterprises, and pre-qualify as an approved supplier. By taking this approach Indigenous businesses are getting access to contracts which they normally would not have been able to as a stand-alone business.
To break the back of poverty of Indigenous communities by developing Indigenous Entrepreneurs and growing sustainable businesses. The Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium (iDiC) is a single point deployment project and account manager, providing a diverse range of services via its consortium partners, all of whom are Indigenous owned businesses. With a national footprint, the iDiC has proven capability in a range of direct and indirect procurement services to support large defence and infrastructure projects. These services include: facility services and construction, professional services and administration, engineering services, consumables, PPE, workwear, apparel, gifts, logistics and warehousing, graphics, photography, IT and telephony.
