“These individuals bring a fresh approach and will be able to draw upon their wealth of ideas to the ongoing reform of NSW Government procurement processes that are aimed at making it easier and simple to do business with government,” he said.

The new members are:

“The group members bring an impressive scale of industry knowledge and expertise that will provide strong counsel to the NSW Procurement Board.

“The members have been selected from an impressive field of candidates for their innovative approaches to the challenges of procurement and their ability to represent industry to help drive efficiency and value for money.

“The establishment of the Industry Advisory Group is part of a major reform process that has seen the formation of the NSW Procurement Board, the simplification of contract terms and conditions, removal of contract management fees and improved engagement with small and medium enterprises,” Mr Pearce said.
