Appendix 5: Consultancy contract details

FaHCSIA's responsibility for both policy matters and the delivery of government services often requires the use of consultant expertise. Consultants are generally engaged when particular specialist expertise is necessary, sufficiently skilled expertise is not immediately available in-house, or independent advice on an issue is required.

The services provided by consultants include information gathering, research, data analysis, customer surveys, different types of financial activities and the provision of technical expertise.

The engagement of consultants is carried out in the same manner as the Department's other procurement activities and is consistent with the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines and the Department's Chief Executive's Instructions. The priority is to obtain value for money. Competitive processes are, as far as possible, used for the selection of consultants, and the Chief Executive's Instructions contain guidelines for the approval of expenditure.

Unless specifically exempt from reporting requirements, the Department must list, on AusTender, all new contracts valued at $10,000 or over. The Department did not have any contracts exempt from this requirement during 2008-09.

Information on Australian Government consultancies and contracts can be found on the AusTender website: www.tenders.gov.au.

Categories of purpose

Based on the categories reported on AusTender, the main purposes (by value) for which new consultancies were let in 2008-09 were:

New consultancies of $10,000 or more
