Procurement Strategy & Transaction Management
Our Procurement Strategy and Transaction Management team works with state and federal governments, and private sector clients to advise on commercial matters and procurement strategies and transactions. Our work spans a range of project types, from small, highly specialised procurements, to some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest, most complex mega-projects.
We specialise in a range of delivery models including Public Private Partnerships, collaborative contracting models and private finance advisory. We also advise on traditional models. Our team has experience across all sectors including rail, road, health, justice, housing, tourism and utilities.
