He worked on the earlier ‘Higher Education at the Crossroads’ Review and the Government’s response to that Review, including the development of the current Higher Education Support Act 2003. 
He was the Principal Analyst for Universities Australia during 2015 and prior to that he had over 30 years of experience in the Australian Public Service. During his time in the public sector Mark worked extensively on policy, legislation and implementation of major Government social security programs and managing their budget implications.
