Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP)
Since its inception in mid 2015, the IPP has sought to close the economic gap that exists between Indigenous & non-Indigenous businesses. The economic & social flow on affects from a thriving Indigenous business sector are profound. To date, this policy has resulted in a total direct spend by federal government agencies with 1,524 Indigenous businesses of $2 billion (PM&C, June 2019). The recent roll out of respective state IPP’s is set to boost these numbers significantly. There has never been a more exciting time for capable Indigenous businesses to succeed and Cole Workwear seeks to position itself at the forefront of this movement.
