Local Buying Program Suppliers

Local businesses who have less than 20 full time equivalent employees 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.

What types of Work Instructions are available for Suppliers to quote on?

There are two sourcing methods available under the Local Buying Program including ‘Request for Quote’ and ‘Sole Source’.

  1. Request for Quote (RFQ) requirements will be communicated via email to suppliers that match their registered category and service area. Work opportunities (Work Instructions) are available for quoting in the Supplier’s Workspace
  2. Sole Source (SS) requirements will be communicated to a nominated supplier if the work opportunity (Work Instruction) meets approved criteria for sole sourcing. Work opportunities (Work Instructions) are available for quoting in the Supplier’s Workspace

RFQ is the preferred method of communicating Work Instructions as it gives more opportunities to suppliers who may be able to meet the scope of the work required.
