Building, construction and maintenance—templates

The contract you use depends on the:

  • value
  • type of work.

If you are working directly with Building and Asset Services (BAS) and your works, services or goods are less than $250,000, you will generally use the BAS General Terms and Conditions. For building projects, you need to use the Capital Works contracts.

We (the department of Housing and Public Works) will send you the relevant contract conditions at the time of a request for quote or invitation to tender.
