Public Work Advisory has initiated an update to Standard Form Construction Contracts including GC21, MW21, Mini-minor Works and Consultancy Services contracts available on Buy.nsw website.

This basic update of GC21 Edition 2 and MW21 documentation was developed by Public Works Advisory, Department of Regional NSW, in consultation with the NSW Construction Leadership Group.

Updates include:

  • names of NSW Government agencies due to machinery of government structural changes
  • names and links to documents and websites such as buy.nsw
  • reference to current NSW Government WHS, Environmental Management and Quality Management Guidelines
  • incorporating requirements of various board directions and policies, such as PBD 2020-03 Skills, training and diversity in construction and the Aboriginal Procurement Policy
  • editing for accuracy, consistency and clarity

View more details in the amendment logs of GC21 Edition 2 and MW21.

Work is in progress to have basic updates completed for Mini Minor Works and Consultancy Services contracts by March 2021.
