Barnett burying BER fiasco

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 19 October, 2012 - 9:33 AM
WA's sub contractors are furious over the governments attitude toward the rorting of the BER program.

The opposition accused the Barnett government of trying to bury problems with the handling of the BER program Until after the next election. Paul Murray spoke to opposition leader Mark McGowan who says the bungled program may have left sub contractors millions out of pocket.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Although I am not directly involved with this disaster, I am seeing the fallout in my business as I deal with many of these smaller contractors.

    I am seeing heart breaking stories of company mismanagement on the part of the Construction Companies. Illegal false Statutory Declarations by the company directors claiming contractors have been paid.

    Forensic Accountants should be brought in to scrutinise these companies and the State Government should pay these monies that are rightly owed

  • How can this wealthy State Government receive $$$$$ from the Federal Government and then select contractors which pocket the goods and the 'subi's go begging? Where is the accountability?
    Have a think.

  • More important I feel is whats being lost in this debate. The quality of work and the products installed in the BER projects have been compromised by contractors trying to build down to a price. One only needs to have a look at the school sites currently underconstruction or nearing completion.
