At Peak, you have an unparalleled choice of purchasing options.
Local Buy’s core business is contracts; establishing common-use procurement arrangements for councils and government entities.
A one-stop, prequalified panel to streamline the process
There’s no need to go through a formal tender process. Local Buy helps alleviate the need for open market tenders by managing the procurement compliance burden on behalf of all government agencies. Streamlining saves time.
Local Buy arrangements are compliant with the Local Government Regulation 2012 and Local Government Act 2009 and provide local government entities with the assurance that suppliers are vetted and compliant based on a comprehensive tender, evaluation and approval process.
Those who benefit from Local Buy arrangements include:
- Local Government
- Queensland Government Departments and Agencies
- Queensland Government Owned Corporations
- Queensland Statutory Authorities
The Local Government Regulations 2012 outline how Queensland’s councils need to manage their procurement activities to ensure fairness and transparency. The Regulations also ensure there is adequate opportunity for suppliers to bid, be awarded and engage with local government businesses.
Local Buy maintains an important separation between its pre-qualified arrangements and other operating divisions, in much the same way as Local Buy always has - through the governance structure that separates divisions and maintains fair and ethical panel selections.
- 35+ prequalified supplier arrangements
- More than 1,000 prequalified suppliers
