Public procurement presents opportunities for improved human rights protection, specifically requiring that suppliers of government goods and services respect human rights. We discuss two recent developments: the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (MSA) which applies to businesses and Commonwealth entities and particularly, recent moves by the Western Australian government to introduce a procurement debarment regime as part of the Procurement Act 2020 (WA). Noting that these are positive developments, we nonetheless identify ways to strengthen both the MSA and the debarment regime.
