Access to Local Buy contracts

Local Buy prequalified supply arrangements enable State Government agencies to benefit from the aggregated purchasing power of Queensland Councils. Specifically, State Government customers are eligible to access a suite of more than 35 Local Buy supply arrangements established for Local Governments in Queensland.

Local Buy Contracts and Suppliers cover a range of mega-categories including goods and services, fleet, works and energy.

Most State Government departments, a majority of Government Owned Corporations and about 90 statutory bodies sourced goods and/or services from one or more Local Buy supply arrangements in 2016-2017.

Access a large supply base

Access to Local Buy contracts allows State Government customers to access supply arrangements that may not be available at State Government level, as well as a large, geographically-dispersed supply base.

This is mainly because Local Buy’s supply arrangements cater primarily to Local Government functions, as well as a geographically spread Local Government customer base with a focus on developing competitive local business and industry. 

Key Benefits

Local Buy supply arrangements enable State Government agencies to reduce their procurement risks and save time and money, through access to over 1,000 prequalified suppliers under 38 supplier arrangements . Improved contract quality and governance also are benefits of sourcing goods and services via Local Buy. All Local Buy contracts are established following a full open tender process.

Local Buy supports the new Queensland Procurement Policy 2017, which includes a focus on procurement in regional and remote Queensland.

Local Buy supplier arrangements are either preferred supplier arrangements or registers of pre-qualified suppliers. Both of these fall within the definition of ‘Common-use supply arrangement' under the Queensland Procurement Policy 2017.
