Queensland Building Services Authority Review

The Government has released its response to the recommendations of a Parliamentary Committee Inquiry into the operations of the Queensland Building Services Authority.
The response (PDF, 191KB) paves the way for significant change to regulation in the construction industry.
The first of these changes is the establishment of a new Queensland Building and Construction Commission, to replace the current Queensland Building Services Authority.
As part of this process, a new Queensland Building and Construction Board is being established to oversee the Commission’s responsibilities.
Expressions of Interest were sought to fill Board positions, anticipated to commence in late 2013.


The Maintenance Management Framework is the policy for the maintenance of Queensland Government buildings. The framework seeks to provide a consistent approach to the planning, management and reporting of building maintenance from a whole-of-Government perspective and applies to all government departments.
The Capital Works Management Framework is a whole-of-Government management framework that identifies critical risk areas in the planning and delivery of building projects, describes best practice processes for the effective management of these risks, and provides the linkage between existing policies and guidelines.

Building code of practice

Queensland Code of Practice for the Building and Construction Industry outlines specific principles and standards of behaviour that underpin best practice and promote positive change in the industry.
The code has bearing on such aspects as tendering, business relationships and workforce management.
All contractors and consultants who want to be involved in Queensland Government building projects need to operate according to the code. This is a prerequisite to gaining prequalification.
