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.

How is BHP supporting local businesses?

To better support local businesses BHP are working on a series of measures that will be implemented across the business. These measures, along with the roll-out of the LBP, form part of the comprehensive Local and Indigenous Sourcing Strategy, aimed at lifting BHP’s capability and performance in working with local and Indigenous suppliers.

BHP recognise that the complexities of bidding for work can present barriers for small businesses. The Local Buying Program provides a platform for small local businesses to supply goods and services to BHP, BMA and BMC operations via a competitive tender process with reduced payment terms.
