Public Works Committee Referral

On Thursday, 30 April 2020 pursuant to subsection 18(4) of the Public Works Committee Act 1969, General the Honorable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, referred the Memorial’s development project to the Public Works Committee for consideration and report.

On Thursday, 25 February 2021, the Parliament Standing Committee on Public Works approved the Development Project.  In its considerations, the committee was required to report on:

  • The stated purpose of the proposed work and its suitability for that purpose;
  • The need for the work;
  • The cost-effectiveness of the proposal;
  • The amount of revenue it will produce if the work is revenue producing;
  • The current and prospective value of the work.

Further information regarding this process and review of public submissions can be accessed on the Parliamentary Public Works Committee website.
