OPS work in an integrated manner within the central west of Queensland, establishing strong working relationships with the other groups who share similar objectives and approach. The feedback and input from these groups have influenced our development, our solution offerings and our journey to date. This local integrated approach is very rewarding and results in everyone, including the region benefiting.
