Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP)

Changes to the Indigenous Opportunities Policy (IOP)

On 1 July 2015 the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) replaced the Indigenous Opportunities Policy (IOP).

From 29 June 2015 as an organisation with IOP requirements or as an organisation wanting to submit a new IOP Plan you will:

  • no longer be able to submit IOP Plans or Reports into the My Plan web based application or receive notifications through the My Plan system
  • have ‘read only’ access to previously submitted IOP Plans and Reports and
  • need to contact your Contract Manager with the Department that you have a contract with to discuss IOP contractual arrangements going forward.
