The projects within the APCC are multi-faceted and collaborative. Each project has a dedicated Working Group, which progresses the aims, with support from the Directorate. The Working Groups meet regularly by teleconference, face-to-face and online.
The APCC community is made up of individuals with a wealth of skills and expertise. Collectively, it represents the hub for procurement excellence. Experts from each member jurisdiction collaborate on projects, creating a knowledge network.
The APCC provides a single, national interface between government and the construction industry and undertakes a consultative, liaison and leadership role. With its member jurisdictions, the APCC is acting as a leader to encourage improvements in the procurement processes within the construction industry.
In partnership with industry, the APCC is developing initiatives aimed at increasing productivity, competitiveness and long-term sustainability for the procurement and construction industries and the benefit of the Australian and Papua New Guinean communities.
