DTMT Wins Construction & Indigenous Award

Date Published: 11/03/2014

DTMT has been awarded both the Construction and Indigenous Engagement Award by Rio Tinto’s Supplier Recognition Programme.

The Supplier Recognition Programme (SRP) seeks to motivate a joint effort to improve the total supply chain and recognise excellence in supplier performance across the Western Australian Rio Tinto Iron Ore businesses. The programme measures the performance of over 100 suppliers and contractors.

The nominations for the programme are received from Rio Tinto management and are based on agreed selection criteria. Key stakeholders then provide feedback on supplier’s performance.

DTMT has more than 20 years’ experience working on Rio Tinto’s Projects. DTMT are currently completing the civil works associated with Car Dumpers 6/7 and the Stockyard for the Cape Lambert Port B (353MTPA) Project.

The Construction Award required feedback on our performance in terms of innovation, safety performance, cost saving initiatives and Indigenous Engagement.

The Indigenous Engagement Award recognises an awareness and understanding of the commitment required in the engagement and employment of Indigenous Australians.

DTMT has continued to support various programs including the Clontarf Foundation as well as developing relationships with other Aboriginal Businesses operating in the Pilbara such as G-Cole Consulting. They recently signed MOU’s with Hicks Civil and Mining (Karratha), Ochre (Perth) and Indigenous Training Australia (ITA) (Port Hedland), to assist in the employment, training and continued engagement of Indigenous Australians and to explore JV opportunities.
