New whole-of-government legal services panel starts
Consistent with its role as the Australian Government's central legal services provider, and reflecting its move to an internal charging model from 1 July 2019, AGS was not required to tender for the Whole of Australian Government Legal Services Panel that commences on 15 August 2019.
Commonwealth agencies can use AGS for any legal work at any time.
The panel will consist of 5 broad areas of law – so AGS has revised its areas of law content in line with the panel so clients can compare our offering with other legal firms.
There is also a new Client engagement agreement that simplifies the process for our clients to use our services.
