Supplier social targets and commitments
When procuring goods and services, the Queensland Government prioritises businesses that make a difference, such as:
- buying from social enterprises that support people facing disadvantage
- having policies that support staff affected by domestic and family violence.
Therefore, you may need to meet social requirements in your tender.
Consider these questions when demonstrating your company's social contribution.
Does your business:
- buy goods and services from social enterprises that provide jobs for people facing disadvantage?
- have a domestic violence policy in place?
- comply with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cwlth)?
When you complete your tender:
- Make sure you include what you're already doing or what you can commit to.
- If you choose to commit to an initiative, outline these plans in your tender response.
- Have evidence of your current or planned contribution, as we may request it.
