Construction Industry Federation welcomes amendments to the Public Works Contract announced today.
The Construction Industry Federation has welcomed today’s announcement of amendments to the Public Works Contract to support the delivery of infrastructure under the National Development Plan critical for Housing for All and Climate Action.
Paul Sheridan, CIF Director of Main Contracting said: “While we need to study the proposed mechanisms in detail, they appear to embed strict checks and balances that will help provide greater budget certainty and value for money to the state and taxpayer, while also supporting the viability and delivery of important infrastructural projects.
“These mechanisms bring us closer to alignment with international norms and are to be widely welcomed by our industry. We remain focused on supporting the Government and Office of Government Procurement as they work on developing further reforms necessary to effectively balance risk, support green procurement and ensure that all projects are awarded based on quality and not lowest price, through the International Construction Measurement Standards and Building Information Management.”
