Office of Projects Victoria CEO outlines role of new advisory authority

Above: Laing O'Rourke's Paul Roth asks a question at the Antony Damiani lunch in May. 

Newly appointed CEO of the Office of Projects Victoria, Antony Damiani, was our special guest speaker in his first major industry outing since taking the reins.

The Office of Projects Victoria (OPV) was established in September last year to oversee how major infrastructure projects are developed, contracted for and implemented.

The OPV will build capability and skills in project development and delivery, and complement the work of Infrastructure Victoria and the Department of Treasury and Finance, providing advice on cost, scope and technical matters for asset investment decisions and project delivery arrangements. It will also monitor all major projects and advise on potential interventions.

Antony, who most recently was MD of Cut and Fill, spoke about the role of the OPV and its inter-relationship with government and the private sector in the Victorian infrastructure delivery chain.

Our thanks to Patron sponsor Arcadis for helping us to bring this event to our stakeholders.

Delivering for Australia's most important asset

As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.

Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.

Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.
