       (2)   Terms that are defined in the Act have the same meaning in this Determination. 


Part 2:  Conditions relating to expenditure of payments

2.1.        A funding recipient must ensure that Roads to Recovery payments are:

(a)     spent only on the construction or maintenance of roads;

(b)     spent only on projects which are identified in the works schedule submitted by the funding recipient in accordance with clause 5;

(c)     spent only on work on projects which are in progress on or after 1 July 2009 and for which payment is required on or after 1 July 2009; and

(d)     not spent on meeting any part of a price paid by the funding recipient for a supply acquired by the funding recipient where:

(i)      the supply is a supply within the meaning of the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax) Act 1999; and

(ii)     the part of the price represents the amount of GST payable on the supply by the entity which is making or which made, the supply.

          Note: the terms ‘road’; ‘construction’ and ‘maintenance’ are defined in section 4 of the Act.  The Department has issued Guidelines which give a more detailed explanation of these terms.

2.2.        If:

(a)     a Roads to Recovery payment is provided for a particular project specified by the Commonwealth; and

(b)     that project costs the funding recipient less than the total Roads to Recovery payments provided in respect of that project or that project does not proceed at all; and

(c)     the funding recipient wishes to spend the unspent Roads to Recovery payment on another project relating to the construction or maintenance of roads;

       the funding recipient must first obtain the approval of the Department of the expenditure of those payments on that other project. 

2.3.        Subclause 2.2 only applies where the Commonwealth has specified that a Roads to Recovery payment is to be spent in relation to:

(a)          a particular project in Western Australia involving the construction or maintenance of bridges; or

(b)          a particular project in Western Australia involving the construction or maintenance of Aboriginal access roads.

2.4.        A funding recipient must ensure that Roads to Recovery payments are spent within six months of receipt of the payment.

              Note: The Minister has power under s.91 of the Act to waive a condition.

2.5         A funding recipient must spend all Roads to Recovery payments it receives by 31 December 2014.

2.6          If a funding recipient receives an amount as interest in respect of a Roads to Recovery payment in one financial year, the recipient must spend an amount equal to that amount on the construction or maintenance of roads in the next financial year and must be able to demonstrate that it has done so.  This condition does not apply to councils which are to receive total funding of less than $1.25 million according to the list determined by the Minister under section 87(1) of the Act in relation to the funding period starting on 1 July 2009 and ending on 30 June 2014.

Note:  Interest earned in respect of a Roads to Recovery payment is own source funds for the purposes of Part 3 of these conditions.

2.7          If a funding recipient distributes Roads to Recovery payments which it receives to local government authorities for expenditure by those authorities on the construction or maintenance of roads, the funding recipient must ensure that the authorities are subject to the same obligations in respect of those payments as those to which the funding recipient is subject to under subclause 5.8 and clause 6.

Part 3: Own source roads expenditure obligation

3.1         Subject to subclauses 3.2 and 3.3, for each financial year in which a funding recipient receives a Roads to Recovery payment, the funding recipient must spend on the construction or maintenance of roads an amount of own source funds equal to or greater than the reference amount applicable to the funding recipient.

3.2         If, in any particular financial year, a funding recipient does not satisfy cl.3.1, but the average expenditure of its own source funds in that year and the previous financial year, or in that year and the two previous financial years, exceeds the reference amount applicable to it, the funding recipient is taken to have met its obligations under subclause 3.1 in respect of the first mentioned financial year.

3.3.        If, in a particular year, a funding recipient does not satisfy the requirements of clauses 3.1 or 3.2, and it can demonstrate that its own source funds in that year fell below its average annual own source funds for the period 1 July 2005 to 30 June 2009, then that funding recipient is taken to have met its obligations under clause 3.1 in respect of that financial year if its expenditure of own source funds has not declined proportionately more than the decline in its own source revenue.

Part 4:  Public Information conditions

4.1         In all formal public statements, media releases or statements, displays, publications and advertising generated by a funding recipient relating to a funded project, the funding recipient must acknowledge and give appropriate recognition to the contribution of the Australian Government to that project.

4.2         If a funding recipient proposes to issue any media release relating to a funded project, the funding recipient must consult with and obtain approval of the proposed release from the Department.

4.3         Subject to subclause 4.4, a funding recipient must ensure that signs in the form specified in Schedule 2 are erected for each funded project, other than projects which are estimated to cost under $10,000, at the time work on the project commences, as follows:

(a)     except where the funded project relates to a cul-de-sac or a one-way road, one sign must be erected at the place where the funded project starts, and one sign must be erected at the place where the funded project ends.  Where the funded project relates to a cul-de-sac, one sign must be erected at the entrance to the cul-de-sac.  Where the funded project relates to a one-way road, one sign must be erected at the place where the project begins.

(b)     all signs must be erected in a prominent but safe position facing oncoming traffic, in any event so that they are plainly visible to passing motorists;

(c)     signs erected as required by this clause must have greater prominence, in size and frequency and visibility, than any other signs which relate to the funded project or which are erected in the immediate vicinity of the funded project.

4.4         Signs should be as specified in figures 1 and 2 of Schedule 2 except that, where a funded project is undertaken on a road where the usual speed limit is 80km per hour or less, the signs may be as specified in figures 3 and 4 of that Schedule.

4.5         A funding recipient must ensure that all signs erected as required by these conditions remain in place for the duration of the project to which they relate and for a minimum period of one year commencing on the day on which the project is completed.

4.6         If a funding recipient proposes to hold an opening ceremony in relation to a funded project, the funding recipient must inform the Department of the proposed ceremony at least two weeks before the proposed ceremony is to be held, and provide details of the proposed ceremony, including proposed invitees and order of proceedings.  If requested by the Department, the funding recipient must arrange a joint Australian Government/funding recipient opening ceremony.

4.7         If requested by the Minister’s office or the Department, a funding recipient must arrange for an Australian Government representative to attend any opening ceremony which the funding recipient proposes to hold in relation to a funded project.

Part 5: Conditions relating to planning and reporting

5.1.        A funding recipient must prepare and submit, as soon as practical after 1  July 2009, but in any event prior to the time the recipient submits its first quarterly report under subclause 5.7 or subclause 5.8, a works schedule to the Department in the manner and form specified by the Department.

5.2         Subject to cl.5.3, a funding recipient must ensure that its works schedule;

(a)     specifies each project on which the funding recipient proposes to spend, on or after 1 July 2009, Roads to Recovery payments received by the funding recipient;

(b)     specifies each project which has been completed and for which Roads to Recovery payments were received;

(c)     specifies the location of each project (other than small funded projects) specified in the works schedule by means including data for use in a Geographical Information System in the manner and form required by the Department;

(d)     includes a description of the project and the funding recipient’s reason for undertaking each project specified in the works schedule;

(e)     specifies the estimated start and completion date for each project specified in the works schedule;

(f)      specifies the estimated total amount of Roads to Recovery payments to be spent on each project specified in the works schedule; and

(g)     in relation to projects specified in the works schedule not funded wholly from Roads to Recovery payments or other Australian Government payments, specifies the estimated total cost of the project, excluding GST.

5.3         Funding recipients may group a series of small funded projects of the same or similar nature in their work schedules as one ‘group project’.  In these circumstances, the funding recipient must ensure that its works schedule includes the following details:

(a)     a general description of each group project;

(b)     the location and cost (excluding GST) of each small funded project in each group;

(c)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments to be expended on each group project;

(d)     in relation to each group project, the estimated start date of the first of the small funded projects in the group project to begin and the scheduled completion date of the small funded project in the group expected to be completed last.

5.4         Only projects in respect of which the funding recipient proposes to expend Roads to Recovery payments on or after 1 July 2009 may be included in the work schedule.

5.5         If the Department provides details of, and access to, the Department’s secure Roads to Recovery website, a funding recipient must submit its works schedule to the Department electronically by using that website.  However, if a funding recipient is not able to access the website, it may submit its works schedule in some other form agreed by the Department.

5.6         A funding recipient must keep its work schedule current.

5.7         A funding recipient may, for each project in its works schedule, submit a report in the form specified by the Department by 31 July 2009 which specifies the amount of Roads to Recovery payments which the funding recipient intends to spend on the project in the quarter 1 July 2009 to 30 September 2009. 

5.8         Where a funding recipient wishes to receive a Roads to Recovery payment in a particular quarter (other than the first quarter in the funding period), it must submit a quarterly report in the form specified by the Department:

(a)          in respect of the quarter 1 January to 31 March: by the following 30 April;

(b)          in respect of the quarter 1 April to 30 June: by the following 31 July;

(c)          in respect of the quarter 1 July to 30 September: by the following 31 October;

(d)          in respect of the quarter 1 October  to 31 December : by the following 15 February.

For example: Where a funding recipient wants to receive a Roads to Recovery payment in the quarter 1 October to 31 December 2010, it must submit a quarterly report in respect of the previous quarter (1 July to 30 September 2010) and that report must be submitted by 31 October 2010.

Note: Where a funding recipient does not wish to receive a Roads to Recovery payment during a particular quarter, it is not required to provide a quarterly report in respect of the previous quarter.  However, it is strongly encouraged to do so, to enable the Department to monitor progress on individual projects.

5.9         The funding recipient must in each quarterly report submitted specify in respect of each project:

(a)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments spent during the period commencing on 1 July 2009 and ending on the last day of the quarter to which the quarterly report relates; and

(b)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments which the funding recipient intends to spend on that project in the following quarter.

Note:     The figures in the quarterly reports can be prepared on a cash or an accrual basis.

(a)     Roads to Recovery payments received during the financial year which have been spent by the funding recipient have been spent on the construction or maintenance of roads;

(b)     the funding recipient has fulfilled its obligations under subclause 3.2, 3.3 or 3.4 (whichever is applicable) of these conditions arising during the financial year (the own source funding obligation);

(b)     photographs of projects completed using Roads to Recovery payments, in the manner and form required by the Department.

Part 8:  Non-compliance with conditions

8.1         If the Secretary or delegate of the Secretary notifies a funding recipient in writing that the Secretary is satisfied that the funding recipient has, in relation to a Roads to Recovery payment, failed to comply with the Act or to fulfil any of these conditions, the funding recipient must repay to the Commonwealth an amount equal to so much of the payment that the Secretary or delegate specifies in the notice.

Part 9    AusLink conditions

9.1         The definition of ‘AusLink Roads to Recovery Payment’ in clause 1(1) of the AusLink conditions is amended as follows:

              After ‘Act’, insert the words ‘for the funding period starting on 1 July 2005 and ending on 30 June 2009’.

Part 10 Compliance with other laws

10.1       Funding recipients are required to comply with all other relevant laws, including those identified below.

10.2       The National Code of Practice for the Construction Industry (the Construction Code) is the standard of practice for building and construction work, setting out the responsibilities of all parties on construction projects funded by the Australian Government.  The Australian Government Implementation Guidelines for the National Code of Practice for the Construction Industry (the Implementation Guidelines) outlines the process for complying with the Construction Code.

The Construction Code and the Implementation Guidelines apply to all construction projects indirectly funded by the Australian Government through grant or other programs where:

·         the Australian Government funding contribution is at least $5 million and represents at least 50 per cent of the total construction value; and 

·         the Australian Government contribution to the project is $10 million or more irrespective of the proportion of Australian Government funding.

For further information, and copies of the Construction Code and Implementation Guidelines, refer to: http://www.deewr.gov.au/WorkplaceRelations/Policies/BuildingandConstruction/Pages/NationalCodeandGuidelines.aspx or contact the National Code Hotline on 1300 731 293.

10.3       Under the Building and Construction Industry Improvement Act (2005), Australian Government agencies can only fund “building work” when, subject to thresholds, an accredited builder is engaged.

The Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme) operates such that, subject to certain thresholds, only head contractors who are accredited under the Scheme can enter into contracts for building work that is funded directly or indirectly by the Australian Government.

Roads to Recovery projects are considered indirectly funded.

The Scheme applies to projects that are indirectly funded by the Australian Government and where:

·         the value of the Australian Government contribution to the project is at least $5 million and represents at least 50 per cent of the total construction project value; or

·         the Australian Government contribution to a project is $10 million or more, irrespective of the proportion of Australian Government funding.

If a project meets the above thresholds, the requirement that accredited builders carry out the building work only applies to head contracts for building work valued at $3 million or more.

For further information on the Scheme, refer to the Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme: Guidance for Government Agencies and Funding Recipients, available on the Federal Safety Commissioner (FSC) website at http://www.fsc.gov.au/ofsc/Theaccreditationscheme/  or contact the FSC Assist Line on 1800 652 500.

10.4       Projects must adhere to Australian Government environment and heritage legislation eg the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.  Construction cannot start unless the relevant obligations are met.

The Department strongly recommends that, before starting an environmental study for a project, Proponents contact the Australian Government Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc/index.html.  They can provide advice about Australian Government requirements and ensure that the Australian Government’s legislative requirements are properly addressed by the study.  This will reduce the likelihood of cost and time delays before construction can commence.

10.5       Other statutory requirements

Funding recipients must also meet other statutory requirements where relevant.  These may include, but are not limited to:

·         Native title legislation;

·         State government legislation - for example, environment and heritage; and

·         Local government planning approvals’
