Our Work

Enabling small local businesses to supply goods and services to BHP

The Local Buying Program was established to support small businesses to engage with BHP and is delivered in a strategic partnership between BHP and C-Res.

The Project

The Local Buying Program is a complex application that has been developed over many years. In a nutshell, it involved the design and development of a system to provide small businesses the opportunity to register and quote on BHP work opportunities via a competitive tender process.

The platform has been successfully operating since 2012 and has so far delivered close to $400M to small businesses and local communities across Australia.

  • Reporting and Compliance
