The hidden flaws of the Indigenous Procurement Policy
The Indigenous Procurement Policy was instituted two years ago with the aim of helping to promote indigenous business ownership.

The IPP has been met with a positive reception from the federal government who boasts the successes of the program, however, there are some who would contest the effectiveness of it.
