Hi all,

Following some movements in the Department of Finance, I will be taking over as the Australian Government Procurement Coordinator.

I am looking forward to taking on this new role and engaging with you to improve knowledge of Australian Government procurement and address any issues you would like to raise. 

I would also like to thank John Sheridan, who has achieved a tremendous amount in his almost five years as Procurement Coordinator, and wish him well in his new position within the Department of Finance.
