Contracting for Services in the Public Sector,
11th & 12th August 2015,
The QT Hotel, Canberra

Public SectorAustralia is increasingly a service based economy, with over 70% GNP accounted for by the services sector. Governments have effectively been outsourcing much of their service provision for the last two decades or so. Yet contracting for services does not seem to have become any easier.

This two-day event for senior public procurement officers will feature a comprehensive agenda addressing all aspects of the contracting life-cycle, illustrated with case studies from a wide variety of jurisdictions.

Your biggest challenges
I would also be interested in receiving feedback in relation to what you see as your biggest challenges if you are contracting for services. The more feedback we get at this stage in the process, the more likely we can deliver you an agenda that meets your needs. So don’t be shy, drop me a line as per above.
Location of the event
At this stage, I am torn between staging the event in Canberra or Sydney. Any feedback you might be willing to provide as to which location you think would be preferable, would be very welcome. Both locations have their pros and cons. Do you have an opinion?Thanks in advance for your support and I look forward to hearing from you,Regards,
