NBN’s history has been blighted by poor relationships with construction contractors. Has the new team fixed the problem?
In the past, NBN’s immediate partners complained of inconsistent placement of work, whilst subcontractors argued that they were being squeezed on margins and, in some cases, left out to dry. Some have gone insolvent.
NBN has now announced a new approach to industry management. Five partners have signed a Multi-technology Integrated Master Agreement (MIMA).
This week on CrossTalk we talk about the new agreement with Sandra Dodds, chief executive of infrastructure at Transfield and Michael Doherty, industry management at NBN. Will this approach cure the dysfunction of the past and ensure NBN meets its aggressive targets?
