Event description
Government procurement and contracting specialist Caroline Atkins will discuss agile in relation to digital sourcing and contract management

About this Event

Agile methodology is designed to allow close collaboration and flexibility so that buyers and sellers can work together to achieve a functional outcome that implements the buyer’s use cases. While it is common for agile to be used in ICT projects, its core features can create uncertainty for buyers, because it is designed to be implemented without a clear end-point.

This session will help buyers better understand agile and identify some tactics that can be utilised to maintain the benefits of the methodology while appropriately balancing the buyer’s need for controls over cost, timing and end point functionality.

Caroline Atkins is a partner at Maddocks lawyers in Canberra, and has specialised in government procurement and contracting for many years. She has substantial experience in complex ICT implementation projects and has also worked extensively on whole of government agreements and panels. Caroline has a deep understanding of what can go wrong in ICT contracts, what vendors want and how to achieve a negotiated outcome that provides an acceptable level of both certainty and risk for customers. Partner Gavan Mackenzie will also attend this presentation. Gavan also has extensive experience in these areas.

This is a Digital Sourcing Network event.

Note: This event is for federal, state and territory government employees interested/involved in buying digital products and services for government.
