The NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has sought the guidance of the Australian Computer Society regarding the increasing use of IT contractors on major projects.

The ACS was approached as they are the peak representative body for the technology workforce, and with a membership of over 22,000 are well positioned to provide unique insight into the challenges facing IT contractors and project managers alike.

Specific challenges identified by ICAC include the overstatement of qualifications by contractors, managing risk associated with scope creep and project delay and strategies for ongoing management of contractors to encourage collaborative and successful project completions.

The ACS is pleased to be able to provide expert advice to ICAC and is looking forward to working with the various stakeholders who will be able to help address what are critical issues affecting the digital economy.
