Buy Queensland enhancements to social procurement

Buy Queensland has been enhanced to create more employment opportunities to drive better social outcomes for Queensland job-seekers.

Buy Queensland is the Queensland Government’s procurement approach introduced on 1 September last year.

This enhanced commitment to purchase from more social enterprises will now deliver even greater economic benefits to communities, more quality workplaces and even greater social outcomes.

Buy Queensland will also have a stronger focus on compliance to ensure a level playing field.

The government’s new social procurement commitment will help to:

  • promote more diverse and inclusive workforces
  • create training and employment opportunities
  • encourage local economic development and growth
  • help people to participate in the wider community and contribute to the economy.
