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.

Are there any costs associated with being a Local Buying Program Supplier?

There are no costs associated with registering to become a Local Buying Program supplier or to use the program.

For each transaction processed through the Local Buying Program, BHP / BMA / BMC pay a nominal percentage to C-Res to cover operating expenses (as a cost neutral entity) and to make a contribution to the Local Buying Foundation or community development initiatives.

C-Res then covers all transactional costs on behalf of local businesses incurred through the Local Buying platform to facilitate purchasing and payments.
