A recent article published on GovenmentNews.com.au reported that ‘Current contract arrangements often prevent consultants from being held accountable for the advice they give to government while ambiguous reporting makes it difficult to determine the value for money of outsourced work’.
This is a hot topic in local government; is there enough accountability and transparency within the procurement process? It follows the revelation from a recent parliamentary inquiry that the use of government contracts below $80,000, which are not required to be put to market, could be a breach of procurement rules and warrants investigation.
There is a place for contracting and using contractors, but the process needs to be thorough and due diligence used. So how can you ensure your organisation is adhering to legislation?
