QinetiQ Australia Announces Membership with Supply Nation
Our membership of Supply Nation reinforces our commitment to diversity both within our workforce and procurement processes.
QinetiQ Australia has a history of initiatives designed to help close the gap for Australia’s Indigenous peoples and communities. These initiatives include:
- Working with Reconciliation Australia to develop our second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP);
- Creating meaningful employment, training and business opportunities; and
- Increasing participation of First Nation-owned businesses within our supply chain, including to support their entry into Australian Defence industry.
“QinetiQ Australia is committed to reconciliation through action, and supply chain diversification, integration and participation of certified Indigenous businesses is a core component of that strategy as outlined in our second Reconciliation Action Plan,” said Greg Barsby, QinetiQ Australia’s Managing Director.
“Providing opportunities for Indigenous businesses not only empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, but also empowers Defence by providing a truly sovereign defence network capability,” he said.
Supply Nation Chief Executive Officer, Ms Laura Berry, said “We are delighted to welcome QinetiQ Australia into the Supply Nation community and look forward to working with them to develop their supplier diversity footprint. The measure of our collective success will be in the value of transactions between QinetiQ Australia and Indigenous businesses”.
Supply Nation connects its membership to Indigenous suppliers to build a vibrant and prosperous Indigenous business sector by incorporating Indigenous owned businesses into the supply chain of Australian companies and government agencies.
Supply Nation’s mission is to facilitate, encourage and promote business between corporate Australia and Government agencies and Indigenous owned businesses.
