The AOFM engages consultants where it requires specialist expertise or when independent research, review or assessment is required.
Prior to engaging consultants, the AOFM takes into account the skills, experience and resources required for the task, the skills available internally, and the cost‑effectiveness of engaging external expertise. The decision to engage a consultant is made in accordance with the PGPA Act and related rules, including the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (CPRs), and relevant internal policies.
