Local Buy

Local Buy

For the past fifteen years Local Buy has harnessed the collective buying power of Queensland councils to deliver value for its members.  Local Buy’s core focus is to support Queensland Councils to reduce the risk, time and costs associated with internal procurement processes.

Owned by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ), Local Buy has also established more than 40 prequalified supplier arrangements for Councils since 2012.  This effectively means that Councils can access a range of goods and services through a quotation, rather than tender process, saving time and money.  These arrangements also provide suppliers an opportunity to partner and engage with Local Government entities through one centralised source.

In addition to its prequalified supplier arrangements, Local Buy offers an electronic tendering system, an electronic request for quotation system and a managed tender service, whereby Councils can effectively outsource their tendering activities.  Local Buy can also act as a probity advisor on strategic or high risk procurements.
