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.

SA: Pride of Workmanship Awards a boon for locals

The last few weeks have shown us all that it is more important than ever to support and celebrate the small businesses in our communities.

The Rotary Club of Roxby District and the Roxby Downs Business Forum are collaborating to recognise employees with outstanding commitment, dedication and initiative to their work with a Pride of Workmanship Award.

Businesses in Roxby Downs and Andamooka will be asked to nominate employees who are an asset to the business by consistently doing an awesome job. The awards are an initiative of Rotary that has been running for 45 years and go by the motto of “Do it once. Do it well. Build a better Australia”.

It is an opportunity for businesses to acknowledge employees who have an exemplary sense of responsibility and pride in what they do, irrespective of their vocation, role or experience.

At this stage, the awards are planned to be announced at a celebratory evening on 20 May. Should this type of event not be able to go ahead, awards will be distributed directly to recipients and announced via social media.
