During 2012–13, the Commission continued to administer its capability development panel, e-learning support services and solutions panel, and executive search and recruitment panel, and to provide agencies with the opportunity to streamline their procurement to meet their capability development needs. Through ongoing partnerships with government agencies and private industry, the Commission transacted over $40 million worth of goods and services through the panels.
The Commission is currently reassessing its panel arrangements and intends to continue to support the strategic procurement of high-quality, value-for-money goods and services that support individual and organisational capability development in the APS.
