About this inquiry

The bill proposes amendments to the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 to reform the Commonwealth Procurement Rules to place greater knowledge and transparency arrangements on government agencies entering into contracts with companies that are, or have related entities, domiciled in recognised tax havens. The bill would also introduce similar measures into the arrangements for the provision of grants by Commonwealth entities.
