Indigenous Procurement Policy
- Utilize existing processes to solicit input from the local Indigenous communities, namely SON, MNO and HSM to collaboratively maximize the benefits of this policy.
- Implement an Indigenous modifier for the evaluation of proposals and support the inclusion of Indigenous businesses in awarding contracts. Ultimately the modifier will favour indigenous owned business in priority order of local, regional or national and where value added is performed by local Indigenous community members.
- Conduct annual pre-sourcing exercises to identify areas where Indigenous owned businesses can be involved in our Supply Chain.
- Enhance processes that identify Indigenous owned businesses within our approved supplier list to ensure inclusion in the Request for Proposals of new business opportunities.
- Conduct annual workshops to identify local Indigenous owned businesses and understand their current capacity and capability to meet our contracting and procurement requirements. Collaboratively work to develop their current capacity and capability and how to create potential opportunities with other Indigenous and non-Indigenous businesses.
- Conduct annual workshops for all local Indigenous businesses to enhance or share their services within the site.
- Leverage the Indigenous Relations Supplier Network (IRSN) to build relationships with the local Indigenous communities and businesses to identify opportunities and establish mentoring networks.
