Construction Contracts Advisory Panel


The Construction Contracts Advisory Panel (CCAP) is a Victorian government committee with membership drawn from departments and public bodies responsible for public construction.

CCAP’s terms of reference are set out in the Guide to Ministerial Directions No. 2, and include providing advice to the Secretary responsible for Part 4 of the Project Management and Construction Management Act 1994 in relation to:

  • public construction procurement including tendering and contracting procedures;
  • pre-qualification of building and construction industry consultants and contractors for public construction purposes;
  • consultant and contractor performance reporting;
  • forms of contract and special conditions of contract for public construction; and
  • identification of best practice opportunities and any other relevant matter.

The Department of Treasury and Finance works closely with CCAP to improve public construction outcomes, develop suitable forms of construction contract, and provide a focus for communicating with other jurisdictions and the construction industry.

The Secretary of the Department of Treasury and Finance is responsible for managing and administering CCAP.
