Local businesses have a unique opportunity to be part of a $180 billion procurement spend in the lead-up to the Brisbane 2032 Olympics and Paralympics.

The Buy Queensland Procurement Strategy supports Queensland businesses to win more government work with the State Government spending about $20 billion per year on goods and services.

What it will achieve

Since Buy Queensland started in 2017, more than $57 billion has been spent with more than 70,000 Queensland-registered businesses.

State Member for Bancroft Chris Whiting says the Brisbane 2032 Games is a significant economic opportunity for local and Queensland businesses.

“Queensland business will be needed to deliver the construction, professional services, catering, flooring, bus rentals, security, furniture, sporting, IT, fitness and audio-visual equipment we need for the 2032 Games,” Mr Whiting says.

How businesses will prepare

Measures are being put in place to prepare businesses that want to be suppliers for the Brisbane 2032 Olympics and Paralympics.

“We will develop a ‘MyGamesPlan’ tool for businesses to test their preparedness for getting government contracts,” Mr Whiting says.

“There will be Q2032 Small Business Procurement Advisors to prepare businesses for pre- procurement processes.”

Mr Whiting says businesses will have access to multiple opportunities.

“There will be a new, easier to use Q-Tender platform that will publish current opportunities and a forward pipeline of future opportunities,” Mr Whiting says.

Queensland businesses are urged to be Games-ready by registering for updates and following a three-step plan at https://www.qld.gov.au/about/brisbane2032.
