Government Procurement Bill 2001

Debate resumed from 1 March 2001, on motion by Mr Humphries:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR QUINLAN (12.25): The opposition will be supporting the passage of this bill unamended. It is the product of the deliberation of the select committee on procurement. The board that is established has review powers, powers to set guidelines and powers to monitor. We think it is a constructive move.

The only departure from the original report by the select committee that I can divine is in the structure of the board. I think the committee recommended that we not have private sector people on the board, given that they may be interacting with government. But the board is balanced, with three public sector employees, and clause 20 covers disclosure of interest. We are prepared to live with that and to support the bill.
