Commercial and financial advisory services panel


The commercial and financial advisory services panel for infrastructure and capital asset projects and commercial transactions aims to facilitate the engagement of external specialist advisory services.

The panel aims to obtain high quality advice, best value for money in terms of competitive fee scales, and expedited service delivery.

The panel provides for:

  • streamlined tendering process for the engagement of specialist advisory service providers for significant projects for government;
  • reduced effort required by advisory service providers in meeting departments’ requirements; and
  • reduced cost to government to contract expert specialist advisory service providers, where savings accrue from reductions in advertising and transaction costs.

The use of the panel by government agencies is not mandatory nor is it exclusive of other government approved procurement methods for obtaining advisory services.

When agencies decide to use the panel they must obtain prior Department of Treasury and Finance approval.
