Security of Payment Statistics Uploaded

March 9th, 2013

Ever wondered what your likelihood of success may be using Security of Payment adjudication?
There can never be a guarantee of success because each contract is different with different circumstances, people and scenarios.
However, historically adjudication has provided much cashflow relief to contractors, subcontractors and suppliers who are diligent in their business and contract practices. Those people either use the legislation to achieve payment on time, settle disputes and be successful through adjudication where a dispute cannot be settled.

To assist the reader, Able Adjudication has gathered together some QLD and NSW adjudication statistics to demonstrate what has gone before you. The statistics are provided from official NSW and QLD Government websites.

The statistics can be found here.

South Australian Training Expression of Interest

September 10th, 2011

The South Australian Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2009 (the Act) will commence in December 2011 which is very closely modelled on legislation currently operating in NSW, Qld, Victoria, ACT and Tasmania.
Able Adjudication is an authorised nominating authority (ANA) in NSW, ACT and QLD and intends to apply to become a nominating authority in South Australia and reasonably expects to be authorised.  This means we are seeking expression of interest (EOI) from persons in South Australia who may wish to:

  • Gain, on the ground practical knowledge in the operations of the Act for themselves, their companies, their clients or other associates;
  • Become a registered adjudicator in South Australia

Initially we are seeking industry participants who wish to make EOI’s to attend any of the intensive courses we currently have on our tentative draft list of courses including “Adjudication Essentials” and “Adjudicator Training”. Course descriptions and potential course dates can be found on our Training and Promotion page noting that Able Adjudication has the sole discretion to activate or cancel any course listed.

NSW BCISOP Amendment 2011

February 25th, 2011

The NSW Government has made amendments to the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (the Act) to allow subcontractors to seek to freeze payments to non-paying contractors. These amendments commence on Monday 28 February 2011.

If a subcontractor applies for adjudication under the Act, they will now also be able to issue a payment withholding request to a principal contractor. As a result of that notification, the principal contractor is required to retain the amount of the claim from any money owed to the respondent (the contractor the payment claim has been made against).
