Friendly reminder: survey to advance sustainable purchasing in Australian local governments

The research team at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Business School is currently conducting a study aiming to better understand the barriers and facilitators of effective purchasing, procurement, and waste management in Australian local governments. The team expects this study will provide local government managers/officers with a holistic approach and relevant-contemporary data collected from multiple councils across the country’s states/territories.

The UNSW team is offering your council the opportunity to be part of this project for comparative Australian data. They are inviting Australian local government professionals (e.g., managers, directors, and officers/coordinators) to participate in an anonymous and confidential 15 -20 minutes online-survey. More specifically, professionals working and/or related to the following fields of expertise:

  1. Procurement
  2. Finance
  3. Waste management
  4. Public works
  5. City Planning
  6. Environment/Compliance
  7. Sustainability

There are neither right nor wrong answers as this study is focused on collecting local government professionals’ perceptions related to procurement/waste management activities within their organisation.
