  • The Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) has a strong interest in efficient and effective contract management. Contracting is an integral part of doing business in the public sector. The delivery of many, if not most, government programs now involve some contracting with private sector providers. As a result, developing and managing contracts is a skill required by public sector entities1 in the management of the majority, if not all, programs. However, contract management is not an end in itself, and it is important that all contracting decisions and actions focus on the outcomes that entities are seeking to achieve and cost-effective delivery approaches.
