Overview of the campaign for the ACT to legislate in-source public services

The Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU), is preparing a submission for the consultation on the draft in-sourcing framework (attached) of the Government of the Australian Capital Territory – ACT (Canberra).

The in-sourcing framework will be used by the ACT government to operationalise the legislated commitment to Implement a whole of government policy that government services will not be contracted out where they could be performed by public servants. The framework aims at providing standardised guidance to public authorities in the ACT territory to de-privatise/remunicipalise/in-source public services & works that are currently privatised and/or outsourced to bring them back in-house.

Maddy Northam, ACT Regional Secretary, CPSU gives an overview of the campaign.
