The Queensland Government is moving to provide services through revised contestability arrangements. This workshop provides an overview of the key public law related risks and issues for the Government as it implements the revised contestability arrangements.

The workshop will consider the capacity of third parties to review contestability related decisions under the existing judicial and merits review processes. The application of the Right to Information Act, the Information Privacy Act and the Public Records Act to the resultant contracts will also be discussed.
