Access a large supply base

Access to Local Buy contracts allows state government clients to access procurement arrangements that may not be available at the state government level.

Local Buy’s contracts cater primarily to local government functions, as well as a geographically spread local government customer base with a focus on supporting local businesses and industry. 

Key benefits

Local Buy contracts enable state government agencies to reduce their procurement risks and save time and money, through access to over 4,000 Pre-Qualified Suppliers across 52 contracts. Improved contract quality and governance are benefits of sourcing goods and services via Local Buy. All Local Buy contracts are established following a full open tender process.

Queensland Procurement Policy

Local Buy supports the Queensland Procurement Policy 2023, which focuses on 6 procurement principles.

Local Buy contracts 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.

Access contracts and suppliers

Government organisations can access Local Buy contracts and suppliers at no cost.
