Core Group

This group was engaged for the duration of the process and steered the process and helped to synthesise feedback during its stages, always operating under the Contract Terms of Reference. This group was responsible for the release of the Contract in a timely manner, ensuring the effective negotiation of the Contract and the highest quality outcome.

The rest of the working groups each went in depth on a specific theme of the Contract and provided advice to the Core Group on what the Contract should include. An online consultation process allowed anyone, from any sector, to provide feedback through a series of survey questions that fed into the development of the Contract by the Core Group.
