Invitation to GC21 General Conditions of Contract Training Course

This is an invitation to all Contractors that have or may do work with Port Macquarie Hastings Council [PMHC] on major capital works projects to attend a one day training course on GC21, facilitated by the Department of Finance, Services & Innovation [DFSI] and hosted by PMHC.

PMHC is a local government area located in the mid north coast region of New South Wales. The area benefits from major intra-state and interstate connecting infrastructure including the Pacific Highway, Oxley Highway, North Coast railway line and Port Macquarie airport. The Hastings River with its major break-wall system at the entrance, has also historically provided an important transport and recreation resource. Population growth in the region is understood to be similar to the national average, promoted by comfortable annual weather conditions and the natural beauty of the coast and hinterland. The region is also a popular tourist destination. These trends place a high demand on Council’s infrastructure requiring the ongoing upgrading and development of water, wastewater, roads and recreational infrastructure.

GC21 Edition 2 is being used by the Infrastructure Delivery Section as the contractual basis for many of Council’s future major capital works contracts valued at more than $1 million.


This one-day course is an introduction to the GC21 Edition 2 General Conditions of Contract, designed to assist contract managers and contractors to gain a sound understanding of the GC21 Edition 2 General Conditions of Contract, and to interpret its key provisions.
