The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Works has announced that it will scrutinise two new proposals from the Department of Defence and one from the Australian Federal Police.

Details of the projects are as follows:

  • Department of Defence – Navy Capability Infrastructure Subprogram – $1 837.4 million – various sites around Australia
  • Department of Defence – HMAS Watson Redevelopment – $430.5 million – Sydney, New South Wales; and
  • Australian Federal Police - Proposed Fitout of New Leased AFP Premises at 140 Lonsdale Street – $98.4 million - Melbourne, Victoria

It is anticipated that the Committee will conduct public and in-camera hearings for the inquiries later in 2019. The Committee would like to hear from all individuals or organisations interested in the inquiries. Submissions will be accepted until 18 October 2019.
