Government & Private Enterprise--A Model Partnership Delivering Outstanding Schools
Ross, Mick
Educational Facility Planner, v45 n1-2 p28-32 2011
In the Australian state of Victoria, the State Government is responsible for delivering a public education system for the compulsory school years. It uses the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) as its agency to develop its educational curriculum, engage with local communities, develop and maintain a portfolio of schools across the state and recruit and manage a team of educators and support staff. For many years, the Department has worked in partnership with external program managers to obtain the special expertise and skills needed to ensure the Department's annual capital works program is successfully delivered. In 2001, global engineering and consultancy firm Arup successfully tendered for the role of Program Manager for the DEECD Capital Works Program and was reappointed, partnering with Indec Consulting, in 2006 and will continue in this role until 2013, when the last of the projects allocated under this commission are finally completed. To date, work has been accomplished on almost 750 school capital works projects through nine years of annual works program.
