nbn has signed additional construction contracts for the rollout of high speed broadband across Australia.

The Multi-technology Integrated Master Agreements (MIMAs) cover the Fibre to the Node (FTTN), Fibre to the Building (FTTB) and Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) rollout in the Northern Territory (SA Power Networks), the ACT (QC Comms) and additional parts of NSW (Lend Lease, QC Comms), Victoria (Decon, Service Stream) and South Australia (SA Power Networks).

Michael Doherty, nbn’s executive general manager for industry management, said the MIMA construction contracts were developed following extensive consultation between the industry and nbn.

“We designed the new contracts around quality, safety and speed and to enable our suppliers to compete for work. This will lift the efficiency and pace of the rollout which is a marked change from the former contracting model where suppliers were allocated large volumes of work but faced no competition and laboured under a huge administrative burden.”

The first tranche of MIMA contracts were awarded in June 2015 to Visionstream, Fulton Hogan, Downer EDI, Transfield and WBHO.

State-by-state breakdown of construction contracts:

NSW Transfield, Visionstream, Downer EDI, Lend Lease, QC Comms

VIC Transfield, Visionstream, Service Stream, Decon
