Palaszczuk Government to appoint Regional Procurement Champion

The Palaszczuk Government will back its Buy Queensland procurement strategy with a new Regional Procurement Champion.

“I am determined to make sure that regional businesses, especially small businesses make the most of their opportunity to get involved in Buy Queensland,” Mr de Brenni said.

“That’s why as part of our Buy Queensland Strategy we will be appointing a Regional Procurement Champion, to advocate on behalf of businesses in regional Queensland.

Mr de Brenni said the Champion will provide a high level voice for the regions across all procurement categories.

“They will be from a region and really understand what it’s like to run a business in regional Queensland.

“I’ve talked to a lot of procurement professionals and small business owners across the regions and I am determined to make sure this regional expertise has a voice at the highest levels.”

The Regional Procurement Champion will be a standing member of the Palaszczuk Government’s Procurement Industry Advisory Group.

Recruitment of the Regional Procurement Champion will commence shortly. For more information about the Regional Procurement Champion and the new Queensland Procurement Strategy email:  betterprocurement@hpw.qld.gov.au
