Mapping the alliance contracting landscape

There has been a significant increase in the use of alliancing in the Australian public sector, with about $42 billion of infrastructure projects delivered
through this means across Australia since 2004; and some $6.9 billion currently under construction or in planning in Victoria alone. We spoke to Nick Tamburro, chair of the Inter-Jurisdictional Alliancing Steering Committee, about the future of alliance contracting.
GN: What is the government infrastructure procurement landscape for 2011?
NT: There will again be more capital works projects. Some will have been years in the planning and others have only just
emerged in response to such unexpected and devastating events like the Queensland and Victorian floods.
I think an emerging trend in 2011 and beyond is an even greater emphasis from governments on excellent procurement
In particular, governments wanting robust and comprehensive business cases so that we are better able to articulate the services benefits of public investment and we are better placed to manage the costs and risks of delivery.
