  • Contracts

    The ‘Consult Australia Contract’ provides basic guidelines for developing a contract between a client and consultant. Available in both long and short form, it is available to both members and non-members. Members are able to download either version from the members only website. Non-members can purchase both versions through the Consult Australia bookshop.

    The contract is designed to address these issues, provide more flexibility for all parties in areas such as liability and professional indemnity insurance and a move towards co operative rather than adversarial contracting.
