RA Procurement Reform Strategy Workshop (Melbourne)

05/03/2020 09:30 to 05/03/2020 13:15

Venue: Australian Institute of Company Directors


This workshop represents the next step of a process we kicked off last November, when Roads Australia, the Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) and the Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF) hosted a roundtable with industry to unpick key issues that go to the heart of financial stability within the construction sector - principally, procurement and risk allocation.

Against the backdrop of a national construction pipeline that continues to grow in size and scale, we are bringing key stakeholders back together to further the development of an appropriate set of recommendations and a strategy to address the core issues, as a template for presentation to governments.

This workshop and its outcomes will complement the work being done in this space by the Construction Industry Leadership Forum (CILF) and others, adding further weight and substance to the current reform process.


Corey Hannett, Director-General, Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA)

Corey heads up the government authority established on 1 January this year to oversee Victoria's major transport projects currently in planning and under construction. A number of project teams come under the umbrella of the MTIA - the Level Crossing Removal Project, North East Link Project, West Gate Tunnel Project, Major Road Projects Victoria and Rail Projects Victoria.

Prior to his current role, Corey was Coordinator-General of the Major Transport Infrastructure Program (from July 2014), and before that CEO of the Regional Rail Link Authority (from 2009 to 2014) charged with delivering Victoria's largest rail project in almost a century.

Corey has more than 20 years' experience in the construction sector, including more than 10 years in the public sector delivering major rail infrastructure projects.

He joined the former Department of Infrastructure in 2003 and earlier in his career worked with Boral Resources and Baulderstone Hornibrook on large-scale road projects, including CityLink as well as airport projects.
