About procurement

As a small organisation, the Commission often engages external third party subject matter experts to provide advice, research and prepare reports.

This practice both enhances credibility and increases opportunity for partnership and collaboration with the sector.

Guidance about supplying goods and services to the Queensland Government, including how to tender, is on the Queensland Government gateway. We work within Queensland government procurement policy and frameworks.

Expression of interest: Research into Stigma and Discrimination

We are seeking proposals to undertake research into the impact of stigma and discrimination related to problematic alcohol and other drug use and perceptions of use on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, families and individuals.

The project will consider the impact of stigma and discrimination on people who are experiencing problematic alcohol and other drug use and also the negative stereotypes that affect the social and emotional wellbeing of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The research will be used to inform and develop activities to:

  • reduce negative stereotypes experienced by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders
  • improve access to support services and to support recovery for those who are experiencing problematic alcohol and other drug use
  • improve social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.

The research is a commitment under Action 6 of the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social and Emotional Wellbeing Action Plan 2016–18.

Closing date: 4:30pm on 20 July 2017.
