The IPWEAvic North-East Regional Group met on27th May at Wangaratta.  Angelo D’costa from DPCD, LGV,  presented to the group on Councils Reforming Business. 

Councils Reforming Business (CRB) is a funded program looking to assist Councils in achieving their objectives through greater collaboration.The Procurement Excellence Program was launched April 2010.  This includes helping Councils through a self assessment process and providing better access to procurement.  As part of the Procurement Excellence Program CRB are helping to expand the Engineering Standards Project started in Shepparton, Campaspe and Bendigo Councils.  The uniform standards are intended to give Councils more opportunities for collaborative procurement as well as providing more consistent guidelines for developers.  The standards also allow Councils to minimise the risk and share the costs of upkeep of engineering design standards.
