NSW Treasurer and Minister for Industrial Relations, the Hon. Mike Baird, has announced that new procurement Guidelines for the State's infrastructure projects will come into effect on 1 July 2013. In announcing the Guidelines, Mr Baird stated that he was responding to submissions on the draft Guidelines that called for consistency with its Victorian and Queensland equivalents. The draft was released late last year and submissions closed at the end of February 2013.

The new Guidelines will affect construction companies that tender for NSW Government infrastructure work and stipulate how these companies are to manage and implement various industrial relations standards on projects and in enterprise agreements.

The new NSW Guidelines largely mirror the Victorian equivalent and have not changed significantly from the draft released last year.
