Department of Construction and Infrastructure Annual Report 2010-2011 40 Corporate Governance Legal Services Given the nature of work undertaken by DCI Legal Services it is crucial to ensure we have the best advice and representation possible. Outsourced by the Department of Justice, the departments lawyer drafts and reviews legal documentation, takes part in negotiations and refers matters to the Department of Justice or private law firms where specific expertise or services are required. Reporting to the departments Executive Management Team on a monthly basis, the DCI lawyer is an intrinsic part of our team. Procurement Services The department is the largest single purchaser of works, goods and services in the Northern Territory. More than 50% of all tier three, four and five tenders and quotes in 2010-11 were for the Department of Construction and Infrastructure. This means that quality procurement is an important part of DCIs Governance Framework. In this financial year, 93% of over 400 tier three, four and five tenders, were put out for public tender providing maximum opportunity for private enterprise to engage with DCI. This means the department has a key role in implementing a number of NT and Australian Government policies, including Buy Territory, Apprentices and Trainees, Indigenous Employment and Training on construction and maintenance contracts, and the National Code of Practice for the Construction Industry. This year, the Procurement Services Unit expanded a previously operationally focused unit to take on a strategic function within the agency. This included finalising the 3-5 year Agency Procurement Management Plan, formulating processes for complaint management, providing representation on the Procurement Review Board and Australasian Procurement Construction Council and increased involvement with Department of Business and Employment procurement initiatives.
