Deliver for regional Queensland

Deliver for regional Queensland. Icon of Queensland map with 5 regions.It doesn’t matter where you live in Queensland, you deserve the very best of frontline services. We will back Queensland jobs first by ensuring businesses in regional Queensland have genuine opportunity to contract with the government.

Action items

Ensure that for each procurement opportunity, at least one regional and one Queensland supplier, where possible, is invited to submit a quote or tender.

  • Allow agencies to procure outside of whole-of-government supply arrangements for regional and remote locations.
  • Allow procurement to occur outside of trade agreement confines.
  • Support the Jobs Regional Growth Package by tailoring non-price criteria tenders to help grow new jobs.
  • Improve regional procurement coordination to make opportunities more accessible.
  • Build procurement capability and expertise across government.
  • Advocate for regional Queenslanders through a regional procurement champion.
Investment in regional projects such as the Cairns Convention Centre expansion benefits local communities.

Streamlining our processes

The strong focus on regional opportunity means that money spent to deliver a service or supplies to a region has a greater economic impact on that region.

The Procurement Strategy and Queensland Procurement Policy will be supported by resources including guides on the use of local suppliers, value for money and probity to assist agencies in their procurement decision-making and to outline opportunities for engaging local suppliers and providers.

By applying the Queensland Procurement Policy across government, including statutory bodies and government-owned corporations while ensuring no increase in household costs, there is opportunity to streamline and simplify our approach and support businesses working with multiple agencies.

Government spending must make a difference

Local procurement supports regional communities and helps to achieve government’s economic, social and environmental objectives
