What you need to have before applying
Please ensure you have read the relevant Program Guidelines and understand the program requirements before submitting an application.
Supply chain companies must select a Business Specialist from the supplier list below to develop their transition project. If you wish to work with a Business Specialist that is not listed, they must separately submit an application that meets the selection criteria and be approved to become a supplier to this program.
Applications for Business Transition and Merger Advisory Services must include a quote from the Business Specialist(s) outlining the scope of work to be delivered, pricing and relevant timelines.
What you get
Business Transition Plan
Business Specialists can also be engaged to undertake a review of an existing transition plan that was developed outside of the program between May 2013 and November 2015. The review will determine if appropriate strategies are in place to assist the supply chain company through the transition period, and make recommendations for change where appropriate.
