SENATOR Kate Lundy has shared the Canberra Business Council’s appearance before the Senate Finance and Public Administration References Committee.

“Appearing today before the Senate Committee, the CBC cited a lack of transparency in the tender process and a poor definition of ‘value-for-money’ as the primary causes of an uneven playing field,” Kate said.

“The CBC went further to say that the exclusion of small Canberra businesses from Commonwealth tenders is stifling innovation and competitiveness within Australia.”

Senator Lundy has vowed to work towards removing these impediments to Canberra’s small businesses.

It’s just a shame she didn’t make more headway when she was a Minister in the Rudd and Gillard Governments before her current time in opposition.
