Contract risk is a multi-billion dollar problem for Australia’s local government

A former senior public servant’s technology solution helps curb cost blowouts and track lost visibility on project and contract overspend.

Some of Queensland’s most remote and regional local government bodies are leading the way in reducing contract blowout by being among the first to use a new platform developed by former senior public servant Megan Avard, who has experienced these problems firsthand.

Avard is the founder and CEO of SurePact, an enterprise SaaS (software as a solution) designed to help governments and corporations identify key project and contract risks at the beginning of a delivery so they can be mitigated against and budgeted for.
