The procurement process for the National Broadband Plan State Intervention Area has been a very robust process with strong risk management throughout, with all scenarios and eventualities having been considered.

  This process is entering its final stages, with the remaining bidding consortium having reaffirmed its commitment to the successful conclusion of that process.
