Call tender report
Paper and statement by minister
MR MOORE (Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services): Mr Speaker, for the information of members I present, on behalf of the Treasurer, the following paper:
Capital Works Program-Call Tender Report for the Australian Capital Territory 2001-02 Capital Works Program.
I ask for leave to have the tabling statement incorporated in Hansard.
The statement read as follows:
Mr Speaker, I present to the Assembly for Members' information, the Call Tender Report relating to the 2001-02 Capital Works Program.
As well as being a useful tool for the Government in monitoring progress of the capital works program, the Schedule has been provided to key industry groups such as the MBA, HIA and Property Council of Australia. It will inform these groups of proposed tender and construction dates for projects being undertaken by the ACT Government in 2001-02. In turn, these groups will be able to pass this information on to their members for their own planning needs.
Mr Speaker, the response from the construction industry following the re-introduction of the Call Tender Schedule in previous years has been positive. I am confident that these users will again find it a valuable tool in their annual and long term planning and budgeting.
Mr Speaker, I commend the 2001-02 Capital Works Call Tender Report to the Assembly.
MR MOORE (Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services): Mr Speaker, there was also a possibility of a statement by the Chief Minister, but we will postpone that until tomorrow.
MR SPEAKER: Thank you for advising me of that.
