Recommendations:

  • There is a significant need to work with corporates to ensure that they understand why it is important to look at their procurement practices and support Indigenous suppliers.   
  • There is a need to work with Indigenous businesses to equip them with the skills needed to provide topical information on what products and services are required now and in the future economic environment and to teach skills of tendering for business.   
  • Management staff and those in charge of procurement need training to be able to effectively bring about organizational changes in procurement practices. 
  • More effective networking could occur to bring together Indigenous businesses and corporates
