The Centre for Collaborative Contracting
The science of collaboration for infrastructure projects and services delivery
The Centre for Collaborative Contracting is an independent initiative from the Alliancing Association of Australasia focusing on advancing the state of excellence in the application and management of collaborative business engagements in the delivery of public, commercial, industrial or social infrastructure projects or services.
