Now in its 19th year and established by the Local Government Association of Queensland, Local Buy allows businesses to build long-standing relationships across the 77 Queensland council regions.

Local Buy chief executive Peter Mifsud said local governments alone spend $600 million through Local Buy arrangements, allowing local businesses to expand.

Current Local Buy contracts include the supply of everything from personal protection equipment and solar batteries to vehicles and call centre facilities.

"We understand the impact COVID-19 has had on local businesses, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to get more work, so that they can get back on their feet sooner, said Mr Mifsud.
