Our expertise is of course also applicable within current and future programs and projects being delivered by managing contractors. We can assist these organisations in design, tendering and delivery. DFAT (Australian Aid) contractors have the added benefit of accessing our expertise in relation to compliance with the Commonwealth’s Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP).
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.”
