Indigenous Procurement Policy

Rork Projects proudly acknowledges the traditional custodians of our land, pay respects to their elders past and present and their continuing traditions on Country.

 

Indigenous Procurement Policy

As a co-owned and managed Indigenous company, Rork Projects has a strong commitment to Indigenous business growth and the various State/Territory and Commonwealth Governments Indigenous Procurement Policies

We are proud members of Supply Nation and committed to Indigenous business development; supporting, developing and fostering opportunities for new partnerships within our supplier and sub-contractor chains, shaping the future of Indigenous business in Australia. Our national capability and Supply Nation membership allows us to establish connections within communities across Australia with a true commitment to support local industry and actively seek opportunities that develop and engage local Indigenous people and communities.

Rork Projects has met National Policy requirements as upheld by the First Australians Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FACCI) for being identified as a First Nations Business.

As a NSWICC Assured business, it means that Rork Projects have met the prequalification requirements of FACCI Policy for determining a Business or Supplier to be Contract ready. (For example, State and Territory Indigenous Chambers of Commerce assess compliance with Government and Industry Regulators, confirm ownership via ASIC registered shareholders agreements and check the capacity of the business to supply under contract.)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement

Our vision at Rork Projects is to meaningfully engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in order to build reciprocal capacity, leverage on and create opportunities for Indigenous employment and businesses from procurement.

Rork Projects supports practices and strategies aimed to increase engagement of Indigenous businesses in Federal, State and Territory Government’s supply chain and also opportunities to leverage for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander jobs and business.

Our vision will be realised through achieving the following 3 goals over the next three years: 2017-2020.

  1. Incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and businesses into the way Rork Projects does business – and ensure ongoing commitment to the implementation of our Engagement Strategy.
  2. Improve the cultural awareness of Rork Projects staff through opportunities to better understand Indigenous culture – and demonstrate respect and recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their culture when working with them.
  3. Establish and foster strong mutually beneficial working relationships with key representative organisations and businesses appropriate to our work.
