Mr Giles said the Government was also looking at how to save money on charter flights and would be finalising tenders for three panel contracts for air charter services in coming weeks. The independent review and the establishment of these new travel processes and systems are all about achieving greater value for money, and ensuring greater accountability and transparency, he said. Mr Giles said a public tender would soon be issued for the corporate travel booking system and he encouraged Territory travel agents to consider forming a partnership to tender for that work.
