Services > Local Procurement

"Local procurement is the practice of opening up opportunities for the participation of local small to medium size enterprises (SMEs) in your supply chain so that the community expands its economic opportunities and creates local jobs which regenerate regional and emerging economies. As the buyer, your local procurement strategy should create benefits for you as well. This can be done by identifying the corporate objectives to which local procurement can positively contribute and creating a programme of local purchasing activities to achieve those objectives.  Once implemented, your investment in achieving good local procurement capabilities should be turned into business capital in order to help you win new contracts or further social license to operate”
