The Local Buying Program has been established to support small businesses in engaging with BHP and BHP Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA).
The Local Buying Program is delivered in a strategic partnership between BHP and C-Res – a cost neutral organisation. The Program has been operating successfully in Queensland since 2012, in New South Wales since 2016, and in South Australia and Western Australia from 2017.
The Program enables small local businesses to supply goods and services to BHP and BMA via a competitive tender process with reduced payment terms. Businesses also receive direct support from C-Res Business Development Advisors and the Program Administration Team.
Businesses with an annual turnover of <AUD$10M and have a significant physical presence near one of BHP’s Minerals Australia core assets are encouraged to register for the Program. For more information on eligibility please refer to the relevant regional pages.
