State government departments, a significant number of government owned corporations and approximately 80 statutory bodies, have sourced goods and/or services from one or more Local Buy contracts in the 12 months to March 2019.
Access to Local Buy contracts allows state government clients to access supply arrangements that may not be available at 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 developing competitive local business and industry.
Local Buy contracts enable state government agencies to reduce their procurement risks and save time and money, through access to over 1,000 prequalified suppliers under over 35 contacts. 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.
