Infrastructure and construction guide to doing business in Australia
DLA Piper has launched the second edition of "Doing Business in Australia: Infrastructure and Construction", a guide to the delivery of infrastructure in Australia. The guide looks at different procurement models including PPPs and alliance contracting, and identifies the major trends influencing the delivery of future infrastructure. It also coincides with the Australian Government's renewed focus on innovative models of infrastructure funding.
The widespread view in Australia is that both government and the private sector must work together to enable the substantial investment required over the next 20 years to bridge the ‘gap’ between current and required infrastructure to allow Australian businesses and communities to function and flourish.
New models to fund government infrastructure are but one key aspect. For many business seeking to win projects in Australia there are many other policy, legislative and regulatory requirements to be met. This guide provides an overview of these requirements.
