About us About us


Local Buy is built on a proud legacy of working together with local and State government in Queensland.  Owned by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) we were established in 1997 to meet the needs of government, reducing risk, time and costs associated with the procurement process.

We have harnessed the collective purchasing power of Queensland councils to deliver value for money for its members.  Our core focus is to support government to reduce the risk, time and costs associated with internal procurement process.

With a team of procurement specialists and over 15 years of procurement experience we understand government.  Our knowledge of government legislation can assist you to achieve an outstanding result in your procurement and probity activities.

We have expanded our reach and now work closely with councils in both Northern Territory and Tasmania, assisting them with their procurement activities.
