Gregory Ross is a partner of Eakin McCaffery Cox’s Commercial Government team. He has many years legal services experience spanning litigious and non-litigious, civil and criminal contexts. He is an accredited specialist in Government and Administrative Law under the NSW Law Society’s Specialist Accreditation scheme and was Head Assessor for that field in 2011-13.
Since 1988 he has practised in the areas of Administrative Law, Government Contracting, Industry Facilitation and Probity matters, including legislative reform and procurement projects, including Public Private Partnerships, to achieve the best value for money for clients.
He works very much at the interface of government and the commercial world. He has, for some time, provided Probity Advisory/Audit governance services to clients.
In context of concerns historically raised which hinder “credit checks” (and noting that this note does not tell schools whether their operations attract “credit provider” and hence “credit reporting” provisions), there are options available for dealing with credit worthiness of school fee payers particularly for schools not able, willing or prepared to be involved in providing credit or credit reporting.
There is some flexibility under the Determination to apply for exemption to facilitate overseas travel.
