- 4 February 2020 7:43AM
The Queensland Government invests $14 billion every year in essential supplies and services and over $5 billion to build and maintain infrastructure.
Government expenditure is big business for small business suppliers. The way the we buy has changed.
We’re looking beyond the cheapest price. It’s about the overall benefit to Queensland and, particularly, to small businesses in local economies.
The Buy Queensland approach puts Queensland jobs as the first priority and is increasing opportunities for Queensland small businesses to supply to government. It works to ensure Queenslanders benefit from these investments by supporting local jobs, local businesses and better social outcomes for local communities.
Buy Queensland ensures government funds are used to:
- prioritise Queensland businesses including small businesses
- support local jobs in regional Queensland
- achieve more positive outcomes on behalf of taxpayers.
