Abstract

This project evaluated a bulk purchasing program for the Australasian Fire Authorities Council. Research completed in the United States on pre-existing bulk purchasing systems and similar agencies that deal with the same problems as Australia were followed by interviews conducted with the fire services in Australia. The result was a recommendation to set up a bulk purchasing committee within AFAC, and pursue the bulk purchase of cab chassis and wildland PPC/PPE.
