    Corruption, Reform and Trust

    Thursday 21st March 2019, 8:00am – 12:15pm

    Procurement is by far the greatest fraud risk in the public sector.*

    The Special Inquiry into Government Programs and Projects, the Service Priority Review and Corruption and Crime Commission reports have shone a light on government procurement. A renewed focus on procurement reform aims to address inadequacies in procurement processes and improve decision-making to deliver important changes to the sector and better outcomes for the community. 

    The Leadership in Procurement Forum brings together senior procurement leaders from across government agencies to explore the implications of these reports and anticipated reforms.  The Forum offers a platform to share expertise, discuss strategic issues, and update your agency on developments in procurement.

    Speakers and topics include:

    • John Langoulant, Special Inquirer into Government Programs and Projects: assessing the successes and failures of government.
    • A/Professor Jeannette Taylor, The University of Western Australia: whistleblowing, integrity and trustworthiness. 
    • Ray Warnes, Corruption and Crime Commission: bribery, corruption and conflicts of interest in the public sector.
    • Carolyn McKell, State Solicitor’s Office: enhancing contractual flexibility. 
    • Emily Roper, Department of Premier and Cabinet: establishing the Public Sector Reform Unit.
    • Chris Thomson, Project Director, Procurement Reform Project Team, Department of Finance: reforming the procurement framework.
