Infrastructure projects

Infrastructure and estate projects maximise the potential of Defence managed areas to ensure ongoing capability, training, and support facilities. 

Under the Public Works Committee Act 1969 all major capital works projects delivered by the Commonwealth require Parliamentary referral and/or approval via the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works. The committee holds enquiries and investigations on the outcome for future capital works.
