The ABCC has created a streamlined form that helps tenderers ensure their Workplace Relations Management Plan (WRMP) is compliant. Head contractors are required to submit a WRMP when tendering for Commonwealth funded building work*.
Most sections of the new form contain pre-approved examples so the effort required by head contractors for developing WRMPs is greatly reduced. Head contractors can modify or create their own entries in the form if they wish. The new WRMP form (Word 115KB) | (PDF 1.5MB) should be used now. We have also published instructions for using the WRMP form (PDF 170KB).
Head contractors are not required to change existing WRMPs on current projects or WRMPs already submitted for assessment.
*Where the Commonwealth’s contribution to the project that contains building work is $5 million or more and this represents at least 50% of the total construction project value, or where the Commonwealth contributes $10 million or more, irrespective of what percentage of the total construction project value that represents.
