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.

Mackay’s MAD Cow Coffee has teamed up with the crew from Wake House Australia to hold its annual World Suicide Prevention Day event.

The event will be held on Friday, September 10th as the community gathers to remember those in our region lost to suicide, show support for the survivors, and those still fighting their own battles. MAD Cow Coffee believes that the community is the answer to reducing the statistics for our region and as community leaders, you are invited to attend this year’s event. This year’s event will feature both hand held and floating lanterns, live music, and the cafe will be open. So please join them at the Wake House to light up the lake with lanterns in remembrance of those we have lost.
