Why use a Local Buy supplier?

Local Buy suppliers are part of our prequalified supply arrangements, which are called Local Buy contracts. You can use our contracts to engage directly with prequalified suppliers from your community. Using Local Buy prequalified suppliers saves you time, reduces risk, and saves you money. Using Local Buy prequalified suppliers means there is no need for you to tender, you can simply request a quotation from our prequalified suppliers and access a range of goods and services through a quotation rather than a tender process.

All Local Buy contracts are compliant with the Local Government Act 2009 and the Local Government Regulations Act 2012. Each Local Buy supplier is vetted through a comprehensive tender, evaluation and approval process prior to being appointed to a Local Buy contract.
