The organisational reviews required the assessment of the current performance of the organisations against their stated objectives or against specific mandates given to deliver services in identified areas. Recommendations were required to be developed from the research undertaken and, in specific cases, strategy and action plans developed presented for the implementation of the recommended changes.

The review of the State Treasury's Accounting Services Division required an assessment of the services that should be delivered, payment for services and alternative service providers.

Leslie has experience in the implementing and supervising of other staff in the implementation of agreed assignment plans and specific methodologies to ensure that agreed review outcomes are achieved. Individual plans are developed and methodologies selected or adapted for each assignment.

Development of Funding Model
Development of a funding model for the Industry Training Councils (ITCs). The model was required to ensure that ITCs addressed the functions set out in their agreement with the WA Department of Training effectively and efficiently. A behavioural model was developed which consisted of baseline funding and a pool of project funding. The baseline funding has no performance based criteria but allows for the impact of certain identified factors which impact on the ITCs' operating expenses. The project funding is based on performance criteria.
