        In April 2007, the New South Wales government appointed Mr Bret Walker SC to inquire into and report on the provision of ferry services by the Sydney Ferries Corporation (SFC) and any action which could be taken to improve the ability of SFC to provide safe, efficient and customer-focused ferry services. Mr Walker's key recommendation was that the government offer a service contract including fleet replacement responsibilities to the market. This article considers how such a service contract might be structured, as well as some alternative contractual models for the provision of replacement ferries and ferry services.

        The concept of "going green" is often a lot easier than a green reality. When setting out to achieve a Green Star or NABERS rating for a building, one needs to think through carefully the type of green rating to be obtained, what is required to obtain that rating, how the rating is obtained, what roles each party is to play, and what are the consequences if the rating is not obtained. Here, the authors consider some key issues when becoming involved in a green rated project.
