Australia: New SA contracts for private school bus services
Last Updated: 2 March 2011

Partner Peter Dwyer and Associate Maria Capati of Cooper Grace Ward’s Bus and Road Transport team recently presented at the Bus & Coach Association (SA) Conference, which attracted 180 delegates representing businesses of all sizes and types associated with the transportation industry.

In conjunction with Pitcher Partners, Peter and Maria specifically discussed the ongoing negotiations regarding the awarding of new contracts for private school bus services for the conveyance of school children, as well as other relevant issues affecting those contracts including the new First Aid Code. Requests for proposal for these contracts are to be issued by the Department of Education and Children’s Services (DECS), a South Australian state government department delivering and coordinating children's services and schooling, who were also represented at the conference.

The two-day program was held in Adelaide on 18 and 19 January 2011, and appeared earlier than usual in the annual conference schedule specifically to accommodate the timing of the DECS contract negotiations.

The Cooper Grace Ward team has more than 15 years of specialist practice in the bus and road transport sector and has advised and represented the Queensland Bus Industry Council, BusNSW, TasBus and the Bus and Coach Association of South Australia.
