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.

As part of the Smart Transformations Project, commissioned by BMA, Futureye held two Community Forums in Dysart and Moranbah in February. The first of their kind to be held in the region, the forums aimed to help people prepare themselves, their families and their businesses for change right now, as well as planning for the future.

The forums included workshops on diverse topics to assist individuals, businesses, and community organisations to get ready and develop real plans to future-proof the towns.

To support the project’s roll out in Dysart and Moranbah, Smart Transformation Advisory Councils have been formed with a range of Dysart and Moranbah community members. STAC members provide local insight and guidance in the process.

Moranbah Smart Transformation Advisory Council member, Sean Milfull, who is General Manager of BMA’s Goonyella Riverside Mine, said: “The Smart Transformation community forums are a new approach to regional development”.

The event presented an excellent opportunity to discuss elements of business planning not often considered, and participants were also quizzed on how confident they were in dealing possible changes which might present.
