Performance reports

This publication was produced prior to the current government.

Government departments are required to complete performance reports for each contractor engaged through the Prequalification (PQC) System.

The performance report aims to review a contractor’s technical and management performance as well as their compliance with statutory, contractual and prequalification requirements.

In addition, the reports provide us, and the contractor’s management, with valuable feedback on elements of the contractor's performance.

Complete the report

The Contractor PQC Performance Reporting guideline is currently under review. For information on the performance reporting process please contact us on 1800 072 621 or

Performance report template (DOCX, 50KB) is to be completed:

  • at the construction 50 per cent complete stage and three months after practical completion 
  • preferably in a face-to-face meeting between the superintendent’s representative or site representative and the contractor’s representative or manager’s representative, where all relevant issues are discussed.

Reports may also be initiated by the Principal under the contract, at other times on an exception basis, or undertaken at the request of the contractor, the PQC Registrar or the department sponsoring the project.

Review of performance reports

The receipt of consistently superior contractor performance reports may lead to increased tendering opportunities for that contractor on select tenders.

The receipt of poor contractor performance reports may lead to a review of their PQC registration details under the review and sanctions process.

Government departments are required to keep us informed at all times of any signs that might indicate possible contractor failure or financial or managerial stress.

The PQC Register should also be informed of incidents, as soon as possible, where a contractor may be:

  • treating or handling subcontractors or workers inappropriately
  • displaying signs of stress in whatever form
  • involved in contractual, legal or administrative action that may jeopardise their performance.
