As part of its commitment to enhancing Aboriginal economic participation outcomes, the Housing Authority expects contractors to meet Aboriginal employment targets. From 2020, mandated targets will apply state-wide.
Targets of 10-20% currently apply to Housing contracts in the Kimberley/Pilbara and Goldfields/Esperance, while in other regions Housing wants contractors to be making progress “towards 5%”.
From 2020 onwards, contractual targets will be applied at 25% in the Kimberley and Pilbara, 15% in Goldfields/Esperance and 5% in all other regions.
For civil works contracts, the targets only apply to contracts with a total labour value greater than $300,000.
