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.

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.

NATIONAL: Perception Survey a Measure of Success

C-Res has released the findings of its 2020 Perception Survey.

Attracting responses from across the Local Buying Program footprints in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, the survey gave LBP suppliers, BHP Buyers and stakeholders of C-Res, the Local Buying Program and Local Buying Foundation a chance to have a say about their experience, engagement and satisfaction.

C-Res CEO Tracey Cuttriss-Smith said the survey attracted a strong response from throughout the respective LBP footprints and delivered some interesting insights.

“We were pleased to have received some great feedback and also see where we can take ideas and suggestions on board to ensure we are delivering exactly what all of our stakeholders need from us.
