SSC guidance for agencies on how to consistently measure and annually report the use of contractors and consultants
Government agencies are committed to building capability within the public service and being open and transparent about how much money is spent on contractors and consultants. This is why the State Services Commission is annually releasing information on contractor and consultant expenditure and has published Guidance to support consistent agency reporting. We will not constrain legitimate contractor and consultant expenditure, especially where this expenditure is appropriate to deliver value. However, we expect agencies to review their options and procurement policies to align with the expectations to invest in public servants.
