About Local Buy

Your Procurement Partner

Local Buy is a leader in the provision of procurement services to the whole of government.

Our team of procurement specialists understand the critical pathways of the procurement process.

We have a clear understanding of our clients' needs and the increasing scrutiny governments face in procurement.

Local Buy offers a range of services including streamlining procurement processes, providing extensive pre-approved supplier lists and providing ongoing support.

Local Buy’s strict prequalified supplier process effectively means that government can access a range of goods and services through a quotation rather than a tender process.

Local Buy also offers an electronic tendering system and a managed tender service, whereby government can effectively outsource their tendering activities.

Local Buy was established by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) to meet the needs of government with the procurement process.

Since 2001, Local Buy has helped to reduce the risk, time and costs associated with internal procurement processes for our government clients.

Our reputation is built on a proud legacy of working together with local and state government in Queensland. 

Local Buy is partnering with the Local Government Association of Tasmania and the Local Government Association of the Northern Territory to include the requirements of Tasmanian and Northern Territory councils when approaching the market to set up new contracts.

Local Buy strives to achieve high quality service delivery to our customers and adopts a philosophy of continuous improvement. Management gives its full commitment in establishing, documenting, implementing, maintaining and continual improvement of this Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 requirements.

Local Buy’s QMS is designed specifically to cover the delivery of professional services and provides the direction that informs and guides Local Buy towards the provision of the best practice in consultancy, technical advisory, training and managed services. The QMS has been developed considering the nature of our business, the risks and opportunities we face and the requirements of our clients and stakeholders.
