Government Contracts 5th edition is the new edition of a work that has now been in existence for some seventeen years. It is Australia’s definitive legal text on all levels of government contracting, which focuses on the legal issues that may arise in connection with government contracts and which have no parallel in the private sector.
It explains the law in a manner that government contract managers, and their private sector counterparts doing business with government, will find indispensable. Presented in plain English, it is equally accessible to lay readers and lawyers. Law students will also benefit from the up to date case law, relevant policy developments and legislation relating to government contracting, including procurement and outsourcing.
Authoritative and respected, Government Contracts has been referred to in State and Federal court cases, in the High Court and in government policy documents.
New material in this 5th edition includes:-
