A 2 page brochure produced for recipients of the Government Endorsed Supplier Award titled 'Ideas to Help You Get the Most Benefit From Your Endorsed Supplier Status'. This was presented to Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd circa 1995 upon the receipt of their certificate. Kodak were awarded a Government Information Technology Contract. To achieve this Kodak had to provide information about their capabilities and quality control. It meant that they could apply for government contracts - at all levels of government.

This brochure was kept by Louis Shane Allen (commonly known as Shane) who worked with the company from 1965 to 2002 in various roles. He was instrumental in the application and tendering process for Government Supplier Status.

Shane Allan worked with Kodak Australasia from 1965 to 2002 and held various positions, starting off in planning and stock control, later moving to managing government contracts, before he became Kodak's Ombudsman with the job of resolving difficult problems with customers.

This image was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
