Department of Transport and Main Roads

How business is awarded

Transport and Main Roads is a diverse, decentralised organisation, responsible for the management of the state road network. We trade with many different individuals, companies and authorities. This trade involves both receiving and supplying goods and services.

Legislation requires us to publish a Queensland transport and roads investment program (QTRIP). The QTRIP sets out network capital works and maintenance proposals. This document also requires us to give emphasis to competitive processes in delivery of the QTRIP.

Transport infrastructure project delivery system (TIPDS) determines the delivery options for major works and projects.

There are three TIPDS volumes:

  • Volume 1 — selection of delivery options
  • Volume 2 — tendering for infrastructure works
  • Volume 3 — prequalification system
