Major Projects Victoria (MPV) is not able to demonstrate that it
operates and manages infrastructure projects effectively,
efficiently or economically.
Poor oversight by the Department of Business and Innovation
(DBI) and the lack of effective internal controls have contributed
to poor governance standards and a lack of organisational integrity
and accountability—contrary to the behaviours expected in the
Public Administration Act 2004.
DBI responses to Parliamentary committees have provided
impressions of MPV’s performance that cast doubt on the veracity of
information it has provided. There are continuing weaknesses in
managing probity, and it is likely that MPV is not achieving the
best use of public resources. By not collecting and reporting
reliable data related to its performance, MPV has also failed to
meet public sector accountability standards.
MPV’s governance and operational shortcomings are pervasive and
should be addressed as a priority.
