Here at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade we are bursting with pride over our selection as a finalist in the Supply Nation’s Supplier Diversity Awards 2019 ‘Government Member of the Year’ category.

The award recognises demonstrated exceptional commitment, engagement and leadership in supplier diversity which has driven significant growth in the Indigenous business sector.

As a finalist, DFAT will also be considered for the Impact Award 2019, which recognises an organisation or individual that has made an outstanding impact on supplier diversity and/or the growth of the Indigenous business sector.

DFAT has been a finalist in the Government category for three years in a row, reflecting our ongoing commitment to supplier diversity.

As at April 2019, we have awarded over 505 contracts to 94 Indigenous businesses with a total value of over $39.1 million.
