Building and Construction Procurement Guide

May 27, 2014 0 Comments

A new Procurement Framework provides certainty for Government and the Civil Construction Industry.

New procurement guidelines released by Austroads and the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) will provide a consistent procurement and contracting approach for road, bridge and non-residential building projects across Australian government.

This is an important step in standardising and simplifying what can be an arduous process when dealing with Federal Government Guidelines for Road Infrastructure Projects.   The guidelines specifically respond to a range of issues raised from the industry. They outline a process for developing procurement strategies and establish a series of common tendering and contracting principles which have been agreed to by all Australian states and territories.

Rod Hook, APCC Council Chair said the guidelines were developed in consultation with industry, along with the road transport agencies and financial management agencies of each of the states and territories.

“The inclusive approach we used to develop the guidelines has resulted in a highly practical document that has been well-received by government and industry” Mr Hook said.

The guide harmonises terminology, methods and processes currently in use to create a consistent framework for procurement and contracting, incorporating a range of delivery model options for individual projects and a baseline process for developing procurement strategies. It also provides information about recent developments in the use of interactive and collaborative procurement processes and project techniques such as building information modelling.

Copies of the Austroads and APCC Building and Construction Procurement Guide can be downloaded from the Austroads website or APCC website.
