UnityWater Capital Works Annual Procurement Plan

UnityWater Capital Works Annual Procurement Plan

UnityWater, a statutory body providing water and sewerage services to the Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast regions, engaged Charles Kendall to compose its Capital Works Annual Procurement Plan. We delivered a timely and highly structured procurement plan that clearly outlined scope and spend strategies, while enabling compliance with both State Government and Competition Authority policies.

The Challenge

  • Communicate key procurement issues to relevant parties;
  • Provide Unity Water with clearer scope and a timely delivery plan of upcoming capital works;
  • Identify opportunities and strategies for planning and project methodologies, with a key focus on expenditure.

Our Approach

  • Stakeholder engagement to identify capital programs and associated procurement activities.
  • Review of current procurement initiatives to establish baseline data;
  • Review of the 2012-2013 capital works program to establish a structured approach to upcoming projects;
  • Development of strategies based on key categories within expenditure and procurement/management.


  • Capital expenditure profile (including forecasts to 2017) encompassing key project delivery areas across major network growth and renewals projects;
  • In-depth description of existing and proposed procurement structure and methodologies, with a corporate-aligned schedule for 2012-2013;
  • Summary of key opportunities, including procurement categorisation, planning and joint activities.
