The Commonwealth Quarterly - Issue 5

Insight and commentary from our national Government team in Australia

Australia Publication May 2022

Welcome to the fifth edition of the Commonwealth Quarterly

Canberra is once again transforming into a winter wonderland with crisp blue skies and icy mornings. As we enter this very busy end of financial year period, our team has curated a range of articles to keep you informed on developments in the Government law space.

Tamara Moretto provides an overview of the recently introduced Data Availability and Transparency Act 2022 (Cth) which has created a new scheme for the sharing of Commonwealth Government data to accredited entities. Tamara also updates us on how the new Commonwealth Procurement Rules, set to come into force July this year, will make it easier for small and medium enterprises to participate in Commonwealth procurement. Des Yek and Peter Mulligan provide a progress update on the national Trusted Digital Identity system which forms part of the Australian Government’s Digital Government Strategy. James Higby, Laura Crick and Emily Hong analyse the contemporary challenges in utilising machine assistance in public sector decision-making. Claire Forster and Charlotte van Beek explore avenues to optimise competitive outcomes in Government procurement.

If you have any questions on any of our articles please do not hesitate to reach out.

Keep warm and stay safe!
