SEE THE LIST: $37m in buy local goverment tenders on offer

Local government contracts worth more than $37 million are up for grabs from this week providing Queensland businesses with a much-needed lifeline during COVID-19.

Local Buy tenders will open on 15 August to supply a range of goods and services to Queensland councils, utilities, local and State government owned corporations and large corporate entities.


Now in its 19th year and established by the Local Government Association of Queensland, Local Buy allows businesses to build long-standing relationships across the 77 Queensland council regions.

Local Buy chief executive Peter Mifsud said local governments alone spend $600 million through Local Buy arrangements, allowing local businesses to expand.

Current Local Buy contracts include the supply of everything from personal protection equipment and solar batteries to vehicles and call centre facilities.

"We understand the impact COVID-19 has had on local businesses, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to get more work, so that they can get back on their feet sooner, said Mr Mifsud.

Local Buy will provide a boost to SMEs.

"Small-to-medium businesses are the backbone of this country and we want to ensure that local businesses, particularly SMEs, are getting a slice of the local work and projects on offer."

Proterra Group managing director Sean Rice said that more than 50 per cent of business for his project management company comes from Local Buy arrangements.



The Toowoomba-based company provides support for civil infrastructure projects including roads, drainage, flood mitigation, landfills and buildings." "It's really great to be able to get the support from Local Buy and councils," said Mr Rice. "It gives you more stability."
