Part 2:            Conditions relating to expenditure of payments
2.1         A funding recipient must ensure that Roads to Recovery payments are:
(a)     spent only on the construction or maintenance of roads; and
(b)     spent only on projects which are identified in the works schedule submitted by the funding recipient in accordance with Part 5; and

Note:            The terms ‘road’, ‘construction’ and ‘maintenance’ are defined in section 4 of the Act.  The Department has issued Guidelines which give a more detailed explanation of these terms.
2.2         If:
(a)     the Commonwealth has specified that a Roads to Recovery payment is to be spent in relation to:
(i)      a particular project in Western Australia involving the construction or maintenance of bridges; or
(ii)     a particular project in Western Australia involving the construction or maintenance of Aboriginal access roads; and
(b)     the project does not proceed or the project costs the funding recipient less than the amount of the Roads to Recovery payment; and
(c)     the funding recipient wishes to spend the unspent amount of the Roads to Recovery payment on another project relating to the construction or maintenance of roads;
       then the funding recipient must first obtain the approval of the Department for the expenditure of the unspent amount on the other project, and the other project must be included in the funding recipient’s works schedule. 
2.3         A funding recipient must ensure that each Roads to Recovery payment is spent within six months of receipt of the payment.
Note:        The Minister has the power under section 91 of the Act to exempt a funding recipient from a condition.
2.4         A funding recipient must spend all Roads to Recovery payments it receives by 31 December 2019.
2.5          If a funding recipient receives an amount as interest in respect of a Roads to Recovery payment in one financial year, the recipient must spend an amount equal to that amount on the construction or maintenance of roads in the next financial year and must be able to demonstrate that it has done so.  This condition does not apply to funding recipients which are to receive total funding of less than $1.25 million according to the Roads to Recovery List.
Note:        Interest earned in respect of a Roads to Recovery payment is own source funds for the purposes of Part 3.
2.6          If a funding recipient distributes Roads to Recovery payments which it receives to local government authorities for expenditure by those authorities on the construction or maintenance of roads, the funding recipient must ensure that the authorities are subject to the same obligations in respect of those payments as those to which the funding recipient is subject under clause 5.8 and Part 6.
Part 3:            Own source roads expenditure obligation
3.1         Subject to clause 3.2, for each financial year in which a funding recipient receives, spends or retains any amount of a Roads to Recovery payment, the funding recipient must spend on the construction or maintenance of roads an amount of own source funds equal to or greater than the reference amount applicable to the funding recipient.
3.2         If a funding recipient does not fulfil the condition in clause 3.1 for a financial year, but the average expenditure of its own source funds in that year and the previous financial year, or in that year and the two previous financial years, exceeds the reference amount applicable to the funding recipient, the funding recipient is taken to have fulfilled the condition in clause 3.1 in respect of the first-mentioned financial year.
Part 4:            Public information conditions
4.1         In all formal public statements, media releases or statements, displays, publications and advertising generated by a funding recipient relating to a funded project, the funding recipient must acknowledge and give appropriate recognition to the contribution of the Australian Government to that project.
4.2         If a funding recipient proposes to issue any media release relating to a funded project, the funding recipient must consult with and obtain approval of the proposed release from the Department.
4.3         Subject to clause 4.4, a funding recipient must ensure that signs are erected for each funded project, other than small funded projects, at the time work on the project commences, as follows:
(a)     except where the funded project relates to a cul-de-sac or a one-way road, one sign must be erected at the place where the funded project starts, and one sign must be erected at the place where the funded project ends.  Where the funded project relates to a cul-de-sac, one sign must be erected at the entrance to the cul-de-sac.  Where the funded project relates to a one-way road, one sign must be erected at the place where the project begins.
(b)     all signs must be erected in a prominent but safe position facing oncoming traffic, in any event so that they are plainly visible to passing motorists;
(c)     signs erected as required by this clause must have greater prominence, in size and frequency and visibility, than any other signs which relate to the funded project or which are erected in the immediate vicinity of the funded project.
4.4         The signs erected for a funded project must be in the form (including size and content) specified in the Signage Guidelines.
4.5         A funding recipient must ensure that all signs erected as required by these conditions remain in place for the duration of the project to which they relate and for a minimum period of one year commencing on the day on which the project is completed.
4.6         If a funding recipient proposes to hold an opening ceremony in relation to a funded project, the funding recipient must inform the Department of the proposed ceremony at least two weeks before the proposed ceremony is to be held, and provide details of the proposed ceremony, including proposed invitees and order of proceedings.  If requested by the Department, the funding recipient must arrange a joint Australian Government/funding recipient opening ceremony.
4.7         If requested by the Minister, a member of the Minister’s staff or the Department, a funding recipient must invite and, if the invitation is accepted, arrange for an Australian Government representative (nominated by the Minister or a member of the Minister’s staff) to participate in any opening ceremony which the funding recipient proposes to hold in relation to a funded project.
Part 5:            Conditions relating to planning and reporting
Works schedule
5.1         A funding recipient must prepare and submit, as soon as practical after 1  July 2014, but in any event prior to the time the recipient submits its first quarterly report under clause 5.7 or clause 5.8, a works schedule to the Department in the manner and form specified by the Department.
5.2         Subject to clause 5.3, a funding recipient must ensure that its works schedule:
(a)     specifies each project on which the funding recipient proposes to spend, on or after 1 July 2014, Roads to Recovery payments received by the funding recipient;
(b)     specifies each project which has been completed and for which Roads to Recovery payments were received;
(c)     specifies the location of each project (other than small funded projects) specified in the works schedule by means including data for use in a Geographical Information System in the manner and form required by the Department;
(d)     includes a description of each project specified in the works schedule and the funding recipient’s reason for undertaking the project;
(e)     specifies the estimated start and completion date for each project specified in the works schedule;
(f)      specifies the estimated total amount of Roads to Recovery payments to be spent on each project specified in the works schedule;
(g)     in relation to projects specified in the works schedule not funded wholly from Roads to Recovery payments or other Australian Government payments, specifies the estimated total cost of the project, excluding GST;
(h)     specifies the main expected outcome from each project; and
(i)      for a completed project, specifies whether or not the expected outcome was achieved.
5.3         Funding recipients may group a series of small funded projects of the same or similar nature in their works schedules as one ‘group project’.  In these circumstances, the funding recipient must ensure that its works schedule includes the following details:
(a)     a general description of each group project;
(b)     the location and cost (excluding GST) of each small funded project in each group;
(c)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments to be expended on each group project;
(d)     in relation to each group project, the estimated start date of the first of the small funded projects in the group project to begin and the scheduled completion date of the small funded project in the group expected to be completed last;
(e)     specifies the main expected outcome from each group project; and
(f)      for a completed group project, specifies whether or not the expected outcome was achieved.
5.4         Only projects in respect of which the funding recipient proposes to expend Roads to Recovery payments on or after 1 July 2014 may be included in the works schedule.
5.5         If the Department provides details of, and access to, the Department’s secure Roads to Recovery website, a funding recipient must submit its works schedule to the Department electronically by using that website.  However, if a funding recipient is not able to access the website, it may submit its works schedule in some other form agreed by the Department.
5.6         A funding recipient must keep its works schedule current and submit an updated works schedule to the Department immediately prior to preparing each quarterly report.
Quarterly reports
5.7         A funding recipient may, for each project in its works schedule, submit a report by 31 July 2014, in the form specified by the Department, which specifies the amount of Roads to Recovery payments which the funding recipient intends to spend on the project in the quarter 1 July 2014 to 30 September 2014.   
5.8         Where a funding recipient wishes to receive a Roads to Recovery payment in a particular quarter (other than the first quarter in the Roads to Recovery funding period), it must submit a quarterly report in the form specified by the Department:
(a)          in respect of the quarter 1 January to 31 March: by the following 30 April;
(b)          in respect of the quarter 1 April to 30 June: by the following 31 July;
(c)          in respect of the quarter 1 July to 30 September: by the following 31 October;
(d)          in respect of the quarter 1 October to 31 December : by the following 15 February.
Example:   Where a funding recipient wants to receive a Roads to Recovery payment in the quarter 1 October to 31 December 2015, it must submit a quarterly report in respect of the previous quarter (1 July to 30 September 2015) and that report must be submitted by 31 October 2015.
Note:        Where a funding recipient does not wish to receive a Roads to Recovery payment during a particular quarter, it is not required to provide a quarterly report in respect of the previous quarter.  However, it is strongly encouraged to do so, to enable the Department to monitor progress on individual projects.
5.9         The funding recipient must in each quarterly report submitted specify in respect of each project:
(a)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments spent during the period commencing on 1 July 2014 and ending on the last day of the quarter to which the quarterly report relates; and
(b)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments which the funding recipient intends to spend on that project in the following quarter.
Note:        The figures in the quarterly reports should be prepared on an accrual basis.
Part 6:            Accountability
6.1         A funding recipient must properly account for Roads to Recovery payments.
Annual report
6.2         For each financial year in the Roads to Recovery funding period, the Chief Executive Officer of the funding recipient must give to the Department by 31 October after the end of the financial year:
(a)     a written financial statement of the Chief Executive Officer in the form set out in Schedule 1 as to:
(i)      the amount of Roads to Recovery payments which remained unspent from the previous financial year;
Note:            This amount is to be shown in column 1 of the Chief Executive Officer’s financial statement as ‘Amount brought forward from previous financial year’.
(ii)     the amount of Roads to Recovery payments received by the funding recipient in the financial year to which the statement relates;
(iii)    the amount of Roads to Recovery payments available for expenditure by the funding recipient on the construction or maintenance of roads in that year;
(iv)    the amount spent by the funding recipient during that year out of Roads to Recovery payments available for expenditure by the funding recipient during that year;
(v)     the amount (if any) retained at the end of that year by the funding recipient out of Roads to Recovery payments available for expenditure by the funding recipient during that year and which remained unspent at the end of that year; and
Note:            This amount is to be shown in column 5 of the Chief Executive Officer’s financial statement as ‘Amount carried forward to next financial year’.
(vi)    the amount of own source expenditure on roads expended by the funding recipient during the year to which the statement relates.

6.4         Despite paragraphs (b), (c) and (d) of clause 6.3, the report referred to in that clause is not required to state whether the funding recipient complied with a condition in this Determination from which the funding recipient was exempt during the financial year.
Note:        The Minister has the power under section 91 of the Act to exempt a funding recipient from a condition and, if considered appropriate, to impose a replacement condition on the funding recipient.

Part 8:            Non-compliance with conditions
8.1         If the Secretary or a delegate of the Secretary notifies a funding recipient in writing that the Secretary is satisfied that the funding recipient has, in relation to a Roads to Recovery payment, failed to comply with the Act or to fulfil any of the conditions in this Determination, the funding recipient must repay to the Commonwealth an amount equal to so much of the payment as the Secretary or delegate specifies in the notice.
8.2         Clause 8.1 does not apply in relation to a failure to fulfil a condition during a period when the funding recipient was exempt from the condition.
Note:        The Minister has the power under section 91 of the Act to exempt a funding recipient from a condition and, if considered appropriate, to impose a replacement condition on the funding recipient.
8.3         If the Secretary or a delegate of the Secretary notifies a funding recipient in writing that the Secretary is satisfied that the funding recipient has, in relation to a Roads to Recovery payment, failed to fulfil any replacement condition that the funding recipient was required to fulfil, the funding recipient must repay to the Commonwealth an amount equal to so much of the payment as the Secretary or delegate specifies in the notice.
Part 9:            Compliance with other laws
Building Code
9.1         A funding recipient that spends a Roads to Recovery Payment on building work described in Schedule 1 to the Building Code must:
(a)     if the building work is carried out by the funding recipient—comply with the Building Code to the extent that the Building Code binds the funding recipient; and
(b)     if the building work is carried out by a building contractor—take all reasonable measures to ensure that the building contractor complies with the Building Code.
9.2         In clause 9.1:
Building Code means the Building Code 2013, as in force from time to time;
building contractor has the same meaning as in the Building Code 2013;
building work has the meaning given by section 5 of the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012.
Note:            The Building Code applies to construction projects indirectly funded by the Australian Government through grant or other programs where:
·            the Australian Government funding contribution to the project is at least $5 million and represents at least 50 per cent of the total construction project value; or 
·            the Australian Government funding contribution to the project is $10 million or more.
For further information on the Building Code, refer to: https://employment.gov.au/building-code-2013 or contact the Building Code Hotline on 1300 731 293.
Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme
9.3         A funding recipient that spends a Roads to Recovery Payment on building work to which subsection 35(4) of the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012 applies must not enter into a contract for the building work with a builder who is not an accredited person.
9.4         In clause 9.3:
accredited person has the meaning given by subsection 35(8) of the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012;
builder has the meaning given by subsection 35(8) of the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012;
building work has the meaning given by section 5 of the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012;
Note:            Under the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012 and the Fair Work (Building Industry–Accreditation Scheme) Regulations 2005, Australian Government agencies can only fund building work when, subject to certain value thresholds, an accredited builder is engaged as the head contractor. This scheme, known as the Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme), extends to building work that is indirectly funded by the Australian Government.
For further information on the Scheme, refer to: http://www.fsc.gov.au/ofsc/Theaccreditationscheme/  or contact the Federal Safety Commissioner Assist Line on 1800 652 500.
9.5         Funding recipients are required to comply with all other relevant laws.
Note:        For example, projects on which Roads to Recovery payments are spent must adhere to Australian Government environment and heritage legislation including the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.  Construction cannot start unless the relevant obligations are met.
The Department strongly recommends that, before starting an environmental study for a project, proponents contact the Australian Government Department of the Environment (http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc/index.html).  They can provide advice about Australian Government requirements and ensure that the Australian Government’s legislative requirements are properly addressed by the study.  This will reduce the likelihood of cost and time delays before construction can commence.
Funding recipients must also meet other statutory requirements where relevant.  These may include, but are not limited to:
·            Native title legislation;
·            State government legislation - for example, environment and heritage; and
·            Local government planning approvals.
Part 10:          Transitional provisions
10.1       A funding recipient that received a payment under Part 8 of the old law for the funding period starting on 1 July 2009 and ending on 30 June 2014 is not eligible to receive any Roads to Recovery payment after 31 October 2014 if the funding recipient has not given to the Department all of the annual reports that the funding recipient is required to give under the old conditions.
