Major Projects Canberra was established on 1 July 2019 to lead the procurement and delivery of the Territory’s infrastructure program.
It has two main components:
1. Procuring and delivering infrastructure projects designated by the Chief Minister into Major Projects Canberra.
- Typically those designated projects will have significant complexity and scale. Major Projects Canberra will bear budget accountability for those projects and report directly to the Minister responsible for those projects.
- The first designated projects are the Canberra Hospital Expansion and City to Woden light rail (as well as finalisation of the Light Rail Stage 1 delivery phase);
2. Delivering other whole-of-government infrastructure projects in partnership with other directorates.
Other functions of Major Projects Canberra include contractor pre-qualification and IRE Certification, project management and reporting, superintendency of works and WHS Active Certification.
Led by the Chief Projects Officer, Major Projects Canberra is made up of five divisions. The Chief Project Officer reports to the Head of Service and is accountable directly to the Treasurer and the relevant Ministers.
