The Rizzo Review was conducted into amphibious and afloat support ship repair and management practices within the Department of Defence.

Dougal advised on implementing the review’s recommendations to both the Royal Australian Navy and the acquisition and sustainment organisation within Defence.

He also supported the rollout of organisational and process changes to meet Defence’s directions.

Dougal conducted a review of the Learning and Development Directorate of the Country Fire Authority.

He advised on implementing a shared services arrangement to standardise and streamline services being provided from the Directorate.

Dougal also conducted a review of the Electronic Systems Division within Defence’s acquisition unit.

He advised on creating an internal organisation to address systemic problems with the delivery of integrated capabilities across multiple acquisition projects.

In addition, Dougal provided risk adviser services for multiple Metro Trains’ projects.

He organised and chaired risk workshops with participants from every business unit of Metro Trains, as well as a range of external stakeholders such as Public Transport Victoria, the local council, and the Rail, Tram, and Bus Union.

The workshops identified the scope and schedule of each project, identified risks for all stakeholders, and developed treatments.
