A government back down on outsourcing
The Department of Finance has confirmed that a contract to outsource audit leave balances for the Office of Shares Services staff has ended. It has come to light that a substantial part of the work was being off-shored.
At a Joint Consultative Committee meeting on Tuesday we were advised that the contract will end and the work will now be done by public sector employees in WA.
This follows intense public interest resulting from recent media coverage.
Expressions of Interest will soon be called for the work to be done within WA and within the Department of Finance.
