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.

QLD: Local Buying Foundation sponsors MRCOC B2B Brews

Thanks to Mackay Region Chamber of Commerce for providing us the opportunity to connect with chamber members to discuss BHP’s Local Buying Program and Local Buying Foundation.  C-Res CEO, Tracey Cuttriss-Smith shared an update on what C-Res and BHP are achieving together for small, local and Indigenous businesses in the Mackay, Isaac and Central Highlands regions, and what’s on the horizon.

A definite point of interest was the Program’s payment terms, currently averaging six days from receipt of invoice, and how the cash flow benefits are circulating through our regions and supporting the sustainability of our local economies.
