How to participate in the Program
The Program is inclusive with participation based only on the ability of applicants to meet the membership criteria. It is not competitive and there is no associated cost or fee.
Applications to participate in the Program are assessed by a Membership Committee. Once a membership application has been accepted the applicant will be advised in writing and the Relationship Agreement and Standing Offer will become binding to both parties.
Application to join Program
The Application Pack is available in the ‘Publications’ area of this website and consists of the following documents:
- Application to Participate,
- 2016 Relationship Agreement,
- Standing Offer, and
- Policy documents.
The Relationship Agreement defines the obligations between the parties. The Standing Offer provides the mechanism for the Commonwealth to acquire services from members. The policy documents define the operational processes of the program.
It is important the evidence provided in the Application to Participate clearly demonstrates how the skills and expertise of the applicant’s people and organisation will contribute to the Program. When assessing applications, the Membership Committee will look for clear and definitive examples or evidence and may discount vague or sweeping statements. Applicants are required to submit the completed Application Pack by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure you retain a copy of the signed Relationship Agreement and Standing Offer for your records.
We will confirm receipt of your Application Pack. The Commonwealth will only use the information obtained from applications to determine the eligibility of applicants to join the Program.
