I’m looking forward to chairing this years symposium. The PGCS program is locked and loaded! We have a full program of speakers locked down, and the program is loaded with talented and interesting presentations.
Our opening keynote speaker will be Assistant Minister Andrew Gee, focusing on the massive investment the Government is making in infrastructure, and the importance of our focus, governance and controls, in achieving value for money.
Contestability is another important subject, and key to Federal Government procurement. If you are interested in understanding how Defence manages this process, you can’t afford to miss the presentation by Ciril Karo, head of the Contestability Division. Ciril will talk about the genesis of the contestability function, how defence approach it, and tie contestability into the Capability Life Cycle model defence use.
These are just the tip of the iceberg – for the full program see: https://www.pgcsymposium.org.au/program.html
