C-Res connects Australia’s smallest locally owned businesses with Australia’s biggest business, BHP, through the Local Buying Program.
The Program is delivered in a strategic partnership between BHP and C-Res – a cost neutral organisation. The program has been operating successfully in Queensland since 2012, in New South Wales since 2016, and in South Australia and Western Australia from 2017.
Recognising that it can often be challenging for smaller businesses to engage as a supplier of BHP, the Program makes it simpler and easier for these businesses to competitively bid for supply opportunities that are released by BMA and BMC operations. The program provides reduced payment terms and the businesses receive direct support C-Res Business Engagement Advisors and the Program Administration Team.
Businesses who employ less than 20 full-time equivalent employees and have a significant physical presence near one of BHP’s Mineral Australia core assets, for Queensland the is the Central Highlands, Isaac and Mackay local government areas, are encouraged to register for the Program.
