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.

Office 365 Training Webinars

As part of a Local Buying Foundation Initiative, Office 365 Webinars will be rolled out for beginners and intermediates for businesses based in the eligible regions across NSW and QLD.  Office 365 offers a suite of apps that work in unison encouraging team collaboration, forums, editing and sharing documents, and workflow automation; while supporting small to medium businesses to connect and engage with their customers.

Webinar duration is three hours, and parts one and two will be held on separate dates.  It is recommended you attend both to receive maximum benefit.  Workshop registration is $50, and will be reimbursed upon completion of the workshops (excluding $5 booking fee).
