CORPORATIONS

If you are an industry proponent or one of their major contractors, you know all about the rolling changes occurring within industry procurement policy in relation to Indigenous participation. Along with the topic of procurement, you know that this also relates to your:

Small to medium enterprise

 

Your sector is the engine-room of the economy, employing up to 95% of the work force. It’s a competitive sector and increasingly fickle due to tightening economics and the practices of your clients up the line. You already know this, but it’s hard to avoid simply competing on price, price, price.

Blue Sky ED will show you how to step away from the race to the bottom by adding a big point of difference to your businesses. Your clients and key stakeholders will sit up and take notice.

We’ll give you a helping hand with your Indigenous procurement & other related engagement and participation activities. That means achieving and exceeding your own current standards, and those of your clients.

Your EOIs, tenders, contracts, and other business procedures are going to bring a whole new flavour to the table.

Not only will you achieve commercial success, you’ll have a strong point of difference in your industry. There’ll be a reputational pay-off too. Clients will acknowledge you. Government will acknowledge you. The media will acknowledge you. And most importantly, the communities where you work will acknowledge you.

Industry Groups

 

Australia is awash with geographic and sector industry groups like yours, ranging from local Chambers of Commerce through to national organisations that represent tens of thousands of Australian businesses.

Blue Sky ED will work with you to raise awareness and best practice across your membership. Your members will value this service because they can see it’s important but have never known how to address it or been offered assistance with this before.

Blue Sky ED will help you nail it.

Testimonial

The timing of assistance from Blue Sky ED was critical for our business. We were preparing a tender with an important client which required a section detailing our approach to Indigenous Participation.

John’s expertise allowed us to not only comply with the requirements, but to exceed them with no noteworthy pricing implications, which all contributed to us winning the contract.

The added bonus with Blue Sky ED’s full-service approach is that we are now able to embed new policy and procedures at a corporate level, which will improve our overall approach to Indigenous Participation into the future.”
