Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works
PWC Process Stages
The PWC’s Manual of Procedures for Departments and Agencies identifies eight steps in the PWC process:
- Identification of the need to refer a proposed public work to the PWC;
- the preparation of a submission to the PWC (the Statement of Evidence);
- the referral of a proposed project to the PWC;
- pre-public hearing activities;
- site inspection;
- public hearing and follow-up; and
- the tabling of the PWC’s report in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
- 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. The key steps in PWC process for the LAND 155 Enhanced Gap Crossing Capability Facilities Project are:
- Referral: Satellite Ground Station - East was referred in Parliament on 22 June 2017.
- Hearing: The Hearing Venue and Date will be published by the PWC on their website after the Project is referred.
- Expediency: The Expediency date will be published on the PWC website after the PWC Outcomes report is tabled in the Parliament..
