Research on BCIPA changes

Practitioners are invited to assist with research on the involvement/removal of authorised nominating authorities from the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act (BCIPA).

The research is being undertaken by Tony Cao, an honours student at the University of Newcastle’s School of Architecture and Built Environment, and his supervisor, Peter Ward.

The de-identified results of the survey will be used by the university in academic publications and a summary may be accessed by participants. Responses to the survey will remain confidential.

The research consists of a 30-minute online survey in which participants will read a statement and then select an answer which best describes their views and opinions.

By accessing the survey, you will be entering a website controlled by the University of Newcastle and subject to the university’s privacy policies and procedures, and subject to its terms and conditions. Queensland Law Society is not responsible for the content or privacy practices on these websites.

The attached information statement provides further details together with a consent form which should be completed and forwarded to Mr Ward indicating your willingness to participate.
