Victorian Aboriginal Fire Strategy
In May 2017, the Victorian Government committed $250,000 to the Federation to work in partnership and co-design an Aboriginal Fire Strategy to integrate science with traditional knowledge and practices.
Victorian Aboriginal Procurement Policy
The Federation believes a State-wide Procurement Policy could be a game changer for the Victorian Aboriginal Economy. The Victorian Government has a budget of $10 million to procure goods and services. If the number of contracts awarded to Victorian Aboriginal businesses was increased, whilst still achieving quality delivery and value for money, Aboriginal economic participation would be achieved without extra cost to the taxpayer.
The Federation has advocated this position since its inception in 2013 and welcomes the Victorian Government’s signal of intention to establish a policy in 2019.
