Place-based initiative for enabling practical local economic development

Unlocks your biggest opportunity


Reduce risk.  Maximise impact.

Approximately 40-60% of procurement in most Government organisations is below tender threshold ($1,000-$150,000).  Many corporates are similar.

This is typically decentralised and managed via email using a “3-quotes” process.  This lacks transparency or reporting, presents significant risk, and is a missed opportunity.  


These opportunities are the ones many SME’s really want.  


Decentralised procurement presents a massive opportunity to REDUCE RISK by  increasing transparency governance and probity, whilst also MAXIMISING IMPACT as a driver of local and regional economic development.
