PWC Process Stages

The PWC’s Manual of Procedures for Departments and Agencies identifies eight steps in the PWC process:

  1. Identification of the need to refer a proposed public work to the PWC;
  2. the preparation of a submission to the PWC (the Statement of Evidence);
  3. the referral of a proposed project to the PWC;
  4. pre-public hearing activities;
  5. site inspection;
  6. public hearing and follow-up; and
  7. the tabling of the PWC’s report in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
  8. Parliamentary approval by the House of Representatives for work to commence.

In practice, Defence groups these steps into four distinct phases: referral, hearing, expediency and reporting.

  1. New Air Combat Capability Facilities Project Referral - The Project was referred in Parliament on the 16th July 2014.
  2. New Air Combat Capability Facilities Project Hearing - Dates and location of the Hearing will be provided in this space in the near future.
  3. AIR 6000 – New Air Combat Capability Facilities Project Expediency - The expediency date for the Project will be advertised in this space in the future.
  4. AIR 6000 – New Air Combat Capability Facilities Project Reporting - PWC report outcomes will be published in this space in the future.
