What is it?
This publication was produced prior to the current government.
The Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) (PDF, 565KB) is made up of policy, guidelines and policy advice notes.
The capital works management process adopts a best practice strategic asset management approach for the initiation, development and implementation of building projects.
It ensures consistency across the Queensland Government.
Why have it?
The Queensland Government invest more than $1 billion per year in new buildings to meet the needs of the community in areas such as health, education and justice.
Capital works funds are given to individual departments so fair and consistent practices and ways to effectively manage risks for government and boost building industry efficiencies are necessary.
Who does it apply to?
The CWMF applies to all government departments (as the term is defined in section 8 of the Financial Accountability Act 2009) that control or administer government buildings.
The CWMF does not apply to other entities such as local governments, government-owned corporations, statutory bodies (for example, universities), or special purpose vehicles.
