Financial performance Consultants Use of consultants The Commission is a small office with broad regulatory, inquiry and advisory responsibilities. It has focussed on attracting and retaining expert staff in-house, and only supplements the expertise of its own staff with specialist technical, economic and other advisors and consultants when it is necessary and efficient to do so. The Commissions work program drives its expenditure on consultants. The Commission incurs a higher level of spending in those years where a greater number of regulatory determinations are made. Details of consultant projects are summarised in Table 6 below. Data of consultant projects for the past five years are available in the Commissions previous annual reports. Also, see the South Australian Tenders and Contracts website for a list of all external consultancies, including nature of work and value. See also the Consolidated Financial Report of the Department of Treasury and Finance for total value of consultancy contracts across the South Australian Public Sector. https://data.sa.gov.au/data/dataset/escosa-annual-report-whs-return-to-work https://data.sa.gov.au/data/dataset/escosa-annual-report-executive-employment http://www.escosa.sa.gov.au/about-us/annual-reports http://www.escosa.sa.gov.au/about-us/annual-reports https://www.tenders.sa.gov.au/tenders/index.do https://www.tenders.sa.gov.au/tenders/index.do http://www.treasury.sa.gov.au/
