27 Jan Local government engagement 2021
BPEQ will start a new round of local government engagement in 2021 and has developed a region by region plan to meet with council engineers. The engagement plan follows the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) finding that professional engineering services in local government carried out by unregistered persons and without direct supervision amounted to corrupt conduct.
BPEQ staff will contact the following councils to arrange seminars and meetings on the PE Act and RPEQ system on the dates listed below.
Further dates to meet with councils not listed will be advised. Councils can request a seminar on the PE Act and RPEQ system as needed.
