Contracting in many public sector entities involves a significant level of expenditure and resources. The Queensland Government expects to spend $56 billion in infrastructure (such as roads, hospitals, schools, Cross River Rail, and cruise terminals) over the four years to 2024. This audit will examine how effectively public sector entities are managing the contracts for the delivery of major new infrastructure. We will assess contract management frameworks, guidelines and processes, and how effectively entities apply them.
