|The Gnardumunn 'Cultural Tourism Business Activity' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) is an agreement between the Office of Indigenous Policy Coordination (OIPC), Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) and the Gnardumunn Community for increased economic independence through the development of community cultural tourism opportunities. |
Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreement' below.
The SRA aims to provide a sustainable economic base for family members to become self-sufficient and to share cultural learning with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous visitors. At the same time, it aims to encourage people to move from passive welfare to active engagement in the workforce. It also aims to pass on cultural skills to the younger generation in the hope that it will aid in building self-esteem and respect for culture.
Communities will begin a transition from CDEP towards real employment outcomes by:
The Office of Indigenous Policy Coordination has proposed a contribution of $38,000 to provide start up funding for building equipment, concrete, a pre-fabrication ablution block and the communal kitchen.
In addition, Indigenous Business Australia has proposed a contribution of $35,000 for the completion of a business plan for the project.
This funding is subject to the partners entering into a legally binding funding agreement.
Performance Indicators and Feedback Mechanisms
The SRA provides for six monthly reporting to be provided by the Gnardumunn Community on the number of tourist clients and their satisfaction levels as noted in the visitor book.
It also provides for quarterly meetings between the community and the Broome ICC to report on progress in matters relating to agreed baseline information and community obligations.
