INDIGENOUS BUSINESS STANDARD FOR "GOODS WITH RELATED SERVICES"

DEFINITIONS:
"Indigenous Business" means a business that is at least 51% Indigenous
owned and controlled and, if it has six or more full-time employees, at
least one-third of its employees must be Indigenous persons.

"Indigenous Business Directory" means a business directory of Indigenous
businesses that meet Manitoba's definition of an Indigenous business.

'Indigenous Business Standard" means terms and conditions that indicate
that Indigenous business participation is desirable but not mandatory.

"Indigenous Person" means a First Nations, Non-status Indian, Mtis or
Inuit person who is a Canadian citizen and resident of Canada.

INDIGENOUS PROCUREMENT INITIATIVE:
Manitoba is committed to community economic development as a key
component of its economic strategy. It intends to develop a provincial
economy that is more inclusive, equitable and sustainable.
Procurement practices are one means that can be used to contribute to
the growth of Indigenous businesses. In that regard, Manitoba developed
the Indigenous Procurement Initiative (IPI). The objective of IPI is to
increase the participation of Indigenous businesses in providing goods
and services to Manitoba.

INDIGENOUS BUSINESS STANDARD:
Indigenous participation is desired but bids will not be disqualified if
there is no Indigenous business participation.

INDIGENOUS BUSINESS DIRECTORY:
Manitoba has established a directory of Indigenous businesses called the
"Indigenous Business Directory". This directory is a list of Indigenous
businesses (including non profit organizations and economic development
corporations) that have self declared as an Indigenous Business meeting
that definition under the IPI. It is neither comprehensive nor
exhaustive but may be a useful resource to identifying Indigenous
businesses for potential partnering or sub-contracting purposes.
Indigenous businesses not listed in the Directory may also be used.

Registration in the Indigenous Business Directory does not guarantee
certification as an Indigenous business, as business status may change;
therefore formal certification is required in the formal tender process.

Indigenous businesses are encouraged to register by contacting
Procurement Services Branch.

Directory please see the following website:
