Country overview

Australia’s transparent public procurement processes and well-resourced infrastructure departments provide favourable conditions for planning and documenting infrastructure projects.

Governance structure

Australia has three tiers of government with the common law legal system. The majority of Australia’s infrastructure delivery is conducted by the eight state and territory governments, which own and are responsible for the infrastructure within their jurisdictions. The Federal Government does deliver some projects, as do some municipalities (local councils).
