The recruitment of Senior Executive Services (positions above Level 1- 8 or equivalent) are outside of the scope of this CUA.

Category 3: HR Investigations

This arrangement is to meet the needs of agencies seeking HR Investigation Services in relation to a range of issues including:

  • allegations of misconduct
  • bullying and employee grievances
  • advice to a public authority on investigation frameworks, processes and techniques

The arrangement is designed to meet investigation requirements at the higher end of the spectrum of allegations and is not intended to be used for matters which require informal interviews, analysis and recommendations.

When to use a licenced or non-licenced investigator

Buyers can use a licensed investigator for complex investigations where having an investigator license would be advantageous. Non-licensed Contractors are prequalified for the CUA based on their government experience with HR investigations and knowledge of the Public Sector Management Act 1994.

Licensed investigators have completed Certificate III in Investigative Services, identity and character checks and police clearances. Please note that where an investigation relates to “conduct” and is not exempt under the Security and Related Activities (Control) Regulations 1997 (Cl 13A) a relevant investigators license(s) may be required. Appropriate licenses may be required where, for example an investigation relates to a grievance concerning the conduct of an employee. 

All CUA Contractors are required to be aware of circumstances when relevant licenses are required to undertake an investigation. Where a licence is required and a Contractor does not have a relevant licence to undertake an investigation they must:

  • inform the customer they are unable to undertake the investigation, or 
  • if it comes to light during the course of an investigation, the Contractor must cease the investigation and inform the customer at the earliest opportunity.

Requesting police or other security checks?

Therefore buyers may require consultants to undergo police clearance and/or other security checks as appropriate.The costs of all such police or security checks are to be covered by the Contractor and for this reason buyers should discuss their requirements with the Contractor before entering into an engagement. Buyers should also specify their requirements in the Order Form.

Exemption requests should be directed to the Director, Common Use Arrangements or the contract manager. Requests for exemptions may be received by posted letter or email, but must be in writing and must provide sufficient explanation and background to enable the request to be considered. The requesting officer should be the Accountable Authority or delegate of the agency.

For guidelines on what to include in an exemption request, refer to the Making a purchase without a competitive process

Purchasing from registered Aboriginal businesses or Australian Disability Enterprises

Agencies can now buy directly from a registered Aboriginal business or Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE), without undertaking a competitive process, even where a mandatory Common Use Arrangement exists.

Purchasing HR services that are not available under this CUA

Making the most of this contract

Buying tips

  • Contractors have quoted maximum hourly rates, which can be reduced upon negotiation. Consider levers such as contract timeframes, payment terms and multiple quotes for your negotiations.
  • Consider negotiating a fixed rate on projects where appropriate. This may be a more cost effective approach.
  • This CUA covers Recruitment Management Services but is NOT for sourcing/engaging temporary personnel. CUA TPS2014 for Temporary Personnel must be used for this.
  • For investigations, consider what identity, criminal records or other security checks you require from the investigator and determine whether a licensed investigator is required.

What will it cost?
