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.

2020 LBP Meet The Buyer – Muswellbrook

The Local Buying Program provides a vital link between small businesses in the Muswellbrook, Singleton and Upper Hunter regions and Australia’s biggest business, BHP. Part of making that happen is bringing our BHP Buyers together with our community’s LBP Registered Suppliers.

The Meet the Buyer event is an opportunity for engagements between BHP buyers and Local Buying Program suppliers. In addition, the event will also provide an opportunity for suppliers to attend workshops hosted by both BHP and C-Res representatives.

Also supported by the Local Buying Foundation, the sessions will provide businesses with important information and insights around the LBP and how best to engage with buyers! It will also be a chance for buyers to see, first hand, the capacity and capabilities available to them right on their doorstep!
