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.

Community, government and industry representatives shone the spotlight on livability and community as part of the Upper Hunter Mining Dialogue Annual Forum at Singleton Civic Centre in November.

The combined goal of the forum was to develop ideas aimed at making the Upper Hunter a better place to live.

Along with 27 displays from mining companies, NSW government agencies, local government and business groups, the Local Buying Program was prolific at the event.

Business Development Advisor, Lisa Harpley, was available to engage with local suppliers, and speak to them about local procurement with BHP, Mt Arthur Coal.

This year’s attendees were also on hand for the launch of the Dialogue’s new Procurement Hub.

The Hub aims to provide valuable links to procurement options for the local mining sector.
