Negotiating interagency agreements and understanding your role in balancing Crown and agency interests are key skills in the government legal sector and can both be very challenging.

The presenters will unravel shared corporate service agreements by walking you through the development of agreements between the Ministry of Social Development and Oranga Tamariki. They will highlight challenges and lessons learnt that will be relevant for other government lawyers.

Topics covered will include:
  • Why have shared services agreements?
  • How to negotiate such arrangements
  • Matters that require attention
  • Risk to the Crown.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will:

  • Be aware of the issues and risks associated with shared services.
  • Understand how agreements for services may be negotiated, constructed and maintained.
