Legal Services Panel Agreement

The exemption policy (Appendix 2 of the Permanent Offer Act on page 85) defines the rules and procedure for authorizing the use of a non-panel company. Each agency should designate an agency contract manager, who is the person who normally manages the acquisition of legal services.

All this panel contract concluded by the Victorian government offers quality and inexpensive legal services. Some agencies will decide whether existing issues will be transferred to the new body.
