Exciting times as we get to comment on the powers for the future federal Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman.
Peter Strong, here no rx CEO of COSBOA, malady mind stated today “we will soon get a small business ombudsman at the federal level who will have the necessary powers to get the job done. Congratulations to Tony Abbott and Bruce Billson on getting this discussion paper out there so quickly.”
COSBOA has been asking for a federal ombudsman with the powers necessary to do the job since 1977 and now we will finally get what is needed to provide fairness and transparency in small business issues to do with the federal government and other issues not covered by state and territory jurisdictions.
Peter Strong added “the discussion paper ask for comments that do not have too be long and detailed, thumb nurse this is the opportunity for small business people themselves to send in comments that may only be a paragraph or two but will help inform what we want the ombudsman to have in the way of power.”
Comments are due by 23 may and the discussion paper can be found HERE
