The Palaszczuk Government unashamedly gives preference to Queensland businesses through our Buy Queensland initiative.
The Buy Queensland policy means that wherever possible, every dollar that the government spends is backing Queensland jobs.
Under Buy Queensland, the government’s new procurement policy will define a “local supplier” as a business that maintains a workforce within a 125km radius of where the goods or workers are needed.
Local suppliers will receive a local weighting of up to 30% on any tender lodged for a significant procurement.
As an extension of the Buy Queensland initiative, the Palaszczuk Government has launched the Queensland Government Food and Beverage Supplier Directory so Queensland Government departments, corporations and events ‘buy Queensland’ first for food and beverages.
That means local caterers and local food and drink manufacturers will now have even greater chances to be suppliers to the Queensland Government.
