    What the NSW Committee does

    The NSW Committee gives members the opportunity to develop strategies to tackle local issues as well as contribute to the national agenda. Committee participants are often called upon to represent Consult Australia in local engagement activities (including meetings with government agencies etc). The NSW Committee meets monthly and requires engaged individuals.

    Latest 'top 3 takeaways'

    The 'top 3 takeaways' summarise key issues discussed at the last meeting. These are to help the broader membership understand the activities of the NSW Committee.

    1. Treasury Infrastructure Advisory’s Supplier Input Panel – This project will impact members for all procurement across NSW Government. The key concern is the introduction of capped rates. 
    2. Policy Pulse – The latest update has been released on LinkedIn and is recommended to all members.
    3. Engagement with Transport for NSW – The NSW Committee has established a new group that will be developing a plan to explore mutual value opportunities.
