Who We Are

 

The Industry Advocate, Ian Nightingale was appointed in 2013. Since this time he has become more aware how important public procurement can be as a mechanism to deliver the Government’s broader economic and social objectives.

Ian’s role and that of his office is to be a catalyst for change with reform recommendations that benefit the State’s economy and small business.

Through the Industry Participation Policy, Ian has established a strong platform to ensure local businesses can make the most of opportunities from the $4 billion in State Government Goods and Services and $1.5 billion in contracts awarded annually and through building and construction projects in South Australia.

Establishing the Industry Advocate Act 2017  together with a commitment from the Government to maintain an industry participation policy provides industry with the confidence they need to fully embrace these initiatives and continue to contribute and invest in the South Australian economy.

Ian has years of experience in running small businesses in metropolitan and regional South Australia and has applied the insights gained from running his own businesses to influence policy outcomes within Government.
