The purpose of this document is to identify principles and methods of implementing good practice in Indigenous Employment, Training & Enterprise Development (IETED) relevant to the oil and gas sectors. This review is Stage 1 of a broader project to compile a resource kit for BG Group that provides guidance on how to implement good practices in the sector. The resource kit is intended primarlily for community relations practitioners, but is expected to form a useful reference guide for senior country managers, contract demand managers and any other staff working in the areas of IETED. This review synthesises good practices in IETED primarily from CSRM’s documented experience with – and analysis of - the mining sector in Australia and CSRM’s work with QGC, BG Group’s Australian coal seam gas business. The methodology for this project primarily involved a desktop review of the academic and practitioner literature on IETED, as well as reports from previous CSRM projects on IETED. This data was supplemented with personal interviews with employees at QGC and it’s engineering, procurement and construction contractor, Bechtel.
