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.

When it came to kitting out the Newman Operations’ Health and Wellbeing Activity Rooms, a local sporting retailer stepped up to the plate and came up a winner!

Sportspower Newman was able to provide sport and leisure equipment which met the specific needs of the site, and through the Local Buying Program they secured the opportunity to provide a table tennis table, fusbal table and yoga mats/resistance bands.

Carly Fraser, from Mining Department, Newman Operations, said Sportspower provided excellent service and the goods needed were delivered in a timely manner.

“”This was a great outcome,” Carly said.

“The items were available quickly for collection and having this equipment means the Health and Wellness Room is going to be great for team interaction on site.”
