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.

Who am I competing against?

Local Buying Program Suppliers will compete for work opportunities through the Local Buying Program against other Local Buying Program suppliers in the Program they are participating in.

The BHP / BMA / BMC employees using the Program can still request quotes from SAP Vendors and compare with Local Buying Program supplier quotes and make an informed decision. However, SAP Vendors that are not eligible for the Local Buying Program will not be able to quote via the LBP website as this is only available for businesses that meet the mandatory criteria.

As part of the BHP Group, all BHP operations are subject to various global supply contracts and cannot use the Local Buying Program for all work opportunities. Exceptions to this will be at the discretion of BHP / BMA / BMC.
