Local Buying Program Suppliers

Local businesses who have an annual turnover of <AUD$10M and a significant physical presence in the state’s eligible regions can register to participate in the Local Buying Program in that state.

Registrations are assessed on an individual basis in alignment with the Local Buying Program eligibility criteria. Once approved, suppliers will have the ability to access and respond to work opportunities (Work Instructions) in their state as they become available.

Buyers (BHP / BMA / BMC)

BHP / BMA / BMC employees can register at any time to use the Local Buying Program for their procurement needs. Buyers will be required to validate their registrations via their BHP email. Once registered, buyers can source goods and services from Local Buying Program suppliers by raising Work Instructions.

NSW: Business community central to community support

Business and Community interaction is vital for our local Business Development Advisors, which is why our NSW BDA, Lisa Harpley has been prolific at local events and activities such as the Muswellbrook Chamber of Commerce and Industry December Chamber Breakfast and Singleton Women in Business November event.

As strong partners of both of these organisations – and their events, the Local Buying Program and Local Buying Foundation, the events consistently attract a number of LBP suppliers.

Ms Harpley said while the events gave representatives of businesses and community organisations the chance to network and work “on” their businesses, instead of always in them, it also provided her with the opportunity to hear, first hand, the challenges, needs and opportunities within the region.

She said they were consistently a comfortable and accessible forum via which feedback, questions and even concerns could be discussed about the Local Buying Program during informal networking.
