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.

After months of behind-the-scenes work by the Local Buying Program’s business development team and BHP communities teams, a Request for Quote went out to selected Banjyima Nation-only bidders for the construction of a Cultural Centre at BHP South Flank’s Mulla Mulla Village, in Western Australia.

C-Res, through the Local Buying Program, worked closely with the cultural centre’s project management team to invite eight identified Banjyima suppliers to submit a quote for the construction of the centre. The scope of works on the Work Instruction included the supply of labour and supervision, plant and equipment, storage and maintenance needs, and traffic management. The quote was scheduled to be awarded in late June with site mobilisation from July 29.
