    Course Description

    Many Departments are adopting a contestability framework as a means of evaluating and improving service delivery and ultimately delivering better value. Contestability involves “testing” how services would rate in a competitive market.

    If you are looking for contestability training, our course is ideal for you. This course encourages participants to look more broadly at the supply and elasticity of the market. Government is a big purchaser of services. Maybe you are an easy touch in some areas. Maybe a supplier is pulling the wool over your eyes. Maybe you simply want to improve your decision-making effectiveness. Whatever the reason, contestability is a proven and powerful framework that will give your department or team a reality check and improve overall effectiveness. Contestability is the key to improve service delivery and our course is designed to promote efficiency and responsiveness.

    “Contestability theory was developed by the American economist, Will Baumol, who recognised that monopoly providers do not need to be exposed to actual competition in order to act competitively, but only the threat of competition.” — Dr Goyal, 2010
