​​Construction procurement

​A series of guides and tools you can download to help with different aspects of construction procurement.

We've developed five guides to help agencies address some of the key issues when developing a procurement strategy for a construction project.

There's no ‘one size fits all’ solution to the delivery of complex infrastructure in government, but there are common good practices that can be more consistently applied.

Included in this suite is specific guidance on how government agencies can take a lead role to improve workplace safety when managing construction projects

Each guide is intended to be used in conjunction with the Government Procurement Rules, and with other MBIE guides and references. Each guide lists the relevant references that support the activities it covers.

Government Procurement Rules

The guides

1. Matching capability to complexity

Provides a structured approach for matching the capability of key stakeholders to the complexity of the project environment. Useful for agencies responsible for delivering major capital projects or programmes of work.

2. Developing your procurement strategy

Provides guidance for agencies or industry organisations involved in delivering public sector projects on:

  • assessing delivery options and identifying a delivery model that accommodates a project’s characteristics, risks and circumstances
  • good practices of tendering and contracting.

3. Achieving construction productivity gains by adopting BIM

Provides a general overview of Building Information Modelling (BIM), its advantages, and when it is appropriate to use.

4. Risk and value management

Provides a structured approach for:

  • identifying and managing project values, to best meet business needs
  • capturing and managing the risks associated with a project’s solution, to offer the best whole-of-life value.

5. Health and safety and employment standards at work

Provides a summary of legislative obligations relevant to construction, and guidance on ensuring these obligations are met.
