Management and accountability (continued)
Consultants, Competitive Tendering and Contracting (continued)

Consultancy services

Consultants are usually employed when the specialist expertise is not available within the Department and selected through a competitive tender process.

There are other times when there is:

  1. need for independent assessment is required,
  2. public tender process has been followed, or
  3. direct engagement of a pre-eminent expert, or consultant who has previously undertaken closely related work for the department.

These variations are indicated.

Consultants are listed in alphabetical order. Payments have been rounded and some payments to the same consultant for similar work have been grouped together.
