National Alliance Contracting Policy
The Australian Government's Department of Infrastructure and Transport has released a National Alliance Contracting Policy and accompanying Guidelines, which are aimed at delivering cost savings through use of a consistent alliance contracting standard and streamlined alliance processes across jurisdictions.
The policy and guidelines do not require the use of alliance contracting. However, they apply in circumstances where alliance contracting has been selected as the contractual delivery strategy for a nominated project. The Tasmanian Government Purchasing Framework does not currently include provision for alliance contracting. Consequently, inner-Budget agencies considering using an alliance contracting model are encouraged to contact the Procurement and Property Branch in the first instance to discuss how this could occur.
The National Alliance Contracting Policy and Guidelines are available on the Department of Infrastructure and Transport's website.
