Buy Queensland 2023 harnesses government’s significant procurement investment to support a thriving, resilient and decarbonised economy.
Our procurement is a powerful tool for economic recovery, growth and resilience.
Building on the success of Buy Queensland 2017, we will continue to use our procurement to:
- meet our procurement spend targets with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, and Queensland small and medium enterprises
- encourage innovation
- drive social outcomes
- support local suppliers.
We will identify a ‘baseline’ of greenhouse gas emissions in priority categories by 2024 and reduce emissions by 30 per cent from the baseline by 2030.
In the face of global instability and climate change, and to seize the opportunities presented by the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we will use our procurement to support the establishment and growth of new industries by declaring certain supply chains to be of ‘State significance’.
Where a Supply Chain of State Significance is declared, activity will centre on building a capable and competitive Queensland manufacturing sector, boosting Queensland content, and managing risk for critical supply chains.
The Queensland Government will declare critical supply chains as of ‘State significance’ to advance identified government priorities, supporting more quality, local jobs and Queensland content, encouraging innovation and creating resilient critical supply chains.
