Barpa a finalist in the 2019 Certified Supplier of the Year award

Barpa Construction Services has been nominated as one of three finalists for Supply Nation’s prestigious 2019 Certified Supplier of the Year award.


​Supply Nation is the Australian leader in supplier diversity and is proud to be the first and preeminent supplier diversity organisation in Australia. Since 2009, Supply Nation has worked with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and procurement teams from government and corporate Australia to help shape today’s emerging and rapidly evolving Indigenous business sector.

Supply Nation recognises companies, government agencies and individuals who are helping create a prosperous, vibrant and sustainable Indigenous business sector through their annual Supplier Diversity Awards.


The Certified Supplier of the Year Award, sponsored by Telstra, recognises a Certified Supplier that has driven significant growth in their business and demonstrated ongoing engagement with Supply Nation and its members.
​The award winner is required to have demonstrated significant Supplier Diversity leadership, advocacy and engagements, as well as organisational growth.

To be certified as a Certified Supplier an Indigenous business needs to be majority-owned, controlled and managed by Aboriginal people or Torres Strait Islanders.
Barpa Construction Services was also a finalist in 2017.


“Barpa is excited and honoured to have been nominated as a finalist for this award,” Barpa Chairperson Graham Atkinson said. “I’d like to congratulate our fellow finalists Indigenous Professional Solutions and Complete Business Solutions and we’re looking forward to attending Connect 2019 to reconnect with and meet the ever growing number of Indigenous businesses who are contributing to the Indigenous business sector in Australia .”
Award winners will be announced at a gala award dinner in Sydney on May 9.
