Project Management for Consortium

Managed project and service delivery for the lead partner of a four member consortium delivering a multi-million dollar program on behalf of a Federal Government Department.

  • Managed the program through significant ongoing uncertainty due to both a change of Government and the subsequent transformations within the Department.
  • Frequent monitoring of expenditure and reviewing of the budget in light of changing program conditions, combined with introducing cost saving measures and close risk management, enabled the program to be extended for five months without further funding while achieving a lower risk profile for the lead partner.
  • The program had many dimensions, and on commencement the program was well established. Through questioning the status quo and paying close attention to contractual terms, identified and implemented changes needed to program delivery, and increased focus on services that would result in improved outcomes for the community.
  • Managed different stakeholder needs during ongoing uncertainty, including staff, other consortium members, suppliers, the Department, and stakeholders in 1,600 organisations throughout Australia.
  • As the management of the program was transitioned to one of the consortium partners, managed the transition process for the components that would continue, and managed the close down of activities that were finishing.
