Enterprise development

The Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships provides a range of services to help strengthen and grow Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in Queensland.

We can help your business by:

  • linking you to business support programs and services
  • inviting you to business workshops tailored to meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses
  • promoting your enterprise to government agencies and private businesses.

We also help by:

  • introducing government and private sector businesses to buying from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander enterprises
  • helping non-Indigenous businesses understand cultural protocols
  • increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander enterprises supplying to the Queensland Government.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander business procurement workshops

Throughout the year we, in partnership with the Department of State Development, run a number of workshops across Queensland for owners and operators of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.

At the workshops participants learn how to:

  • expand their business through government procurement
  • submit a conforming tender
  • clearly understand how tenders are evaluated and awarded
  • maximise their chances of winning contracts
  • navigate critical websites to find key information
  • learn more about available programs and services to help their business.

Dates for upcoming workshops will be advised soon.
