Aboriginal Participation In Construction Policy – Implementation Made Easy!

14 Mar 2019
Reconciliation in Construction

The revised Aboriginal Participation in Construction (APIC) policy 2018 has been developed to support greater participation by Aboriginal people in government construction projects across NSW.

The objective of the APIC policy is to create opportunities for Aboriginal owned businesses and encourage Aboriginal employment and training through the supply chain of NSW Government contracts.

The APIC policy is now mandatory for three categories of construction projects:

  • Category 1    Projects nominated by an agency that are primarily directed to one or more Aboriginal communities. This includes projects where an Aboriginal community is the sole or predominant beneficiary, is a key user group or a predominant stakeholder.
  • Category 2    All other construction projects where the estimated value is over $10 million.
  • Category 3    All other construction projects where the estimated value is over $1 million.

What the Australian construction industry is saying about Sydney Build...

  • The Perfect Hire team and I thought the expo was fantastic. There was a great mix of people walking through looking at the exhibitions and we have gained a lot of quality leads due to this. We did not hesitate to sign up for the following year when approached to do so.
    Perfect Hire
  • This expo has 100 percent given us very goods leads we could follow up on. This is the best form of marketing we’ve done so far. We’ve been able to connect with leads that are usually very difficult to get in contact with. We’re definitely coming back next year.
    High Exposure
  • The show has a good variety of content including conference, summit and the exhibition itself. We got some quality leads as well. We will definitely come again next year.
  • I just wanted to say to you and the team, great job on an excellent event. I'd been in years before and this one was by far the best. You had great traffic. I was actually surprised. I'm definitely interested in a bigger speaking role next year and I'll likely exhibit.
    Tradie Web Guys
  • We got some quality leads. The show is managed by very nice organizers. We enjoyed the content and environment of the show a lot.
    Regupol Australia Pty Ltd
  • The show is excellent for the business. There’s lots of good quality people to do business with. This is also the best show we’ve ever been to.
