The division calls tenders from industry for all construction work on behalf of the client agencies, with the aim of ensuring value for money for Government. Strategic Issues for 2011-12 Economic Sustainability Ensuring that appropriate resource requirements and models are in place to enable effective delivery of Governments infrastructure program. Continuing to support industry engagement through sharing information and training opportunities, and working collaboratively to attract employees to the construction industry. Working with client and core agencies to ensure the appropriateness and effectiveness of procurement methodologies for the delivery of Government infrastructure. Budget Highlights for 2011-12 Economic Sustainability Management of the infrastructure program on behalf of Government, including: 224 major capital works projects at a total value of $711.96 million; minor new works projects for client agencies, at a total value of $84.3 million; and repairs and maintenance projects for client agencies, at a total value of $196.8 million. Performance The Construction Divisions income and expenditure is expected to decrease in 2011-12 with an overall reduction to the operating surplus in comparison to 2010-11. This is primarily due to Commonwealth-funded projects within the stimulus package, including Building the Education Revolution and Science and Languages projects, nearing completion.
