Indigenous Business Direct:

Indigenous Business Direct (“IBD”) is Supply Nation’s publicly accessible directory of Certified Suppliers and Registered Indigenous Businesses. You can access it on the Site at: http://www.supplynation.org.au/indigenous_businesses/Indigenous_Business_Direct

A Certified Supplier is a business that is at least 51% Indigenous owned, controlled and managed.

A Registered Indigenous Business is a business that is at least 50% Indigenous owned.

IBD is a one-stop-shop for anyone looking to buy from an Indigenous business. Mandated by the Federal Government as the first reference point for government buyers when fulfilling their targets under the new Indigenous Procurement Policy, IBD is equally valuable as a resource for any procurement professional or buyer wanting to transact with an Indigenous business.

Eligible businesses can register their business online directly on IBD, and log in to update their business profile and contact details.
