Construction directory

The construction directory is a national panel of suppliers for the delivery of Capital Works construction projects over $500,000.

This directory is exclusively for Ministry-led projects, tendered by region, value band, project type and delivery method. All Ministry-led projects will be tendered to construction directory suppliers in the first instance.

Professional services directory

We have a specialised sub-panel of the all-of-government (AoG) CCS panel called the professional services directory, which is only available for Ministry-led projects.

The professional services directory currently covers quantity surveying services and master planning and lead design services. Over time, we will add further consultancy services, including project management.

Joining the professional services directory

Suppliers need to be a member of the AoG CCS panel before they can join the professional services directory.

The professional services directory is refreshed to encourage new suppliers to join and existing suppliers to amend their appointment. We will endeavour to release an open 'notice of intent' on the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) prior to any refresh.

The AoG CCS gives us access to a panel that is specifically set up for the consultancy services we need for our construction projects.

For Ministry-led projects, we may use the AoG CCS for services other than lead design and quantity surveying.
