At any stage of the procurement lifecycle – from tender writing to final negotiations – accurately and completely describing what you are buying is critical…and rarely straightforward. Here are some of our thoughts on getting this right.
A “lack of probity” is often raised in a procurement context as part of a complaint that there is an element of perceived unfairness.

Landholder duty is a state tax that was introduced to impose duty on acquisitions in landholding entities.
The ‘economic entitlement’ provisions of the landholder regime are an integrity measure unique to Victoria. Previously, they applied duty to transactions which provide the acquirer with an economic entitlement that amounts to an interest of 50% or more in a private landholder. This specifically impacts arrangements where developers or builders agree with a landholder to receive 50% or more of the profits or income of a landholder’s land without actually acquiring an interest in the landholding entity.
