Two new inquiries for the Public Works Committee

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works announced that it will scrutinise two new proposals from the Australian Taxation Office and the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities. These projects include an office fit-out in Moonee Ponds, Victoria and wharf crane infrastructure at Christmas Island with a total value of $62.1 million, excluding GST.

It is anticipated that the Committee will conduct public and in-camera hearings for the inquiries in late 2018 or early 2019.

Details of the projects can be found below:

  • Australian Taxation Office Proposed Fit-out of Leased Premises – $35.5 million – Moonee Ponds, Victoria; and
  • Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities Proposed Replacement of the Wharf Crane and Mooring Systems – $26.2 million – Christmas Island, Indian Ocean Territories.

The Committee would like to hear from all individuals or organisations interested in the inquiries. Submissions will be accepted until 23 November 2018.

NB the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works is not involved in the tendering process, the awarding of contracts or details of the proposed works. Enquiries on those matters should be addressed to the Australian Taxation Office and the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.
