QUARTERLY LEGAL UPDATE: How is the changing law impacting procurement practices in Australia? (VIRTUAL)



Session held on 1st June 2021

About this session

What is happening in the law and how is it affecting procurement practices – in a real-time way? 


Join Scott Alden and his team for this 60-90 minute session every three months – which will be half webinar and half Q&A, and find out THREE key things:




  1. What new laws are coming in to effect right now that might affect how procurement operate with suppliers?

  2. What recent CASE LAW decisions might impact directly and indirectly upon procurement practices, or have implications for how we work with suppliers?

  3. How are we implementing new solutions to recent laws that have come into effect, including regular updates on progress with:


Payment Time Reporting Act 2020


Fed Govt Covid variations 2020-21    


Unfair Contract Terms Act 


Modern Slavery Act 2018


Chain of Responsibility laws – nationally not just in NSW 


Privacy Laws and regulations 


Lock out law changes in NSW
