Hunter region procurement toolkit launched

RDA Hunter has partnered with NSW Trade and Investment, Australian Industry Group, Hunternet, Hunter Business Chamber and AusIndustry to develop the Hunter Region Procurement Toolkit.

The Toolkit, launched on the 21stĀ of November, has been developed in consultation with Hunter industry and government organisations and is designed to assist local SMEs to diversify, grow and become more resilient. The Kit provides an easy reference for Hunter companies to identify and prepare for new business opportunities.

The content of the Hunter Region Procurement Toolkit is part of a broader Hunter Strategic Procurement Initiative which also includes supply chain and bid writing workshops as well as a procurement masterclass. Through presentations, discussions and surveys, key government and non-government organisations have highlighted their procurement requirements and processes in the Toolkit with the hope of developing relationships with suppliers within the region and increasing their local spend.
