Concern for clients as domestic violence court services put out for tender

Domestic Violence NSW chief executive Moo Baulch said the state government’s decision to proceed with a three-week tender process for the provision of women’s court support services has caused considerable angst in the sector.

“The timeframe means really small organisations will be pitted against larger organisations, which are better equipped to prepare a tender within three weeks,” Ms Baulch said.

“It means you lose the expertise of staff on the ground who, in some cases, have been doing this for years and years.”
