DPTI Master Specification
DPTI Request for Tender documents are prepared from standard templates, which are available by clicking on the following links:
What is the “Master Specification”?
The Master Specifications set out the requirements to achieve the quality and/or performance outcomes expected in the finished product for construction projects and professional services. It enables DPTI to communicate standard requirements across industry to supply materials, plan, design, construct and maintain its infrastructure assets.
Specifications are grouped into eight categories with multiple parts:
- Project Controls
- Public Realm
- Transport planning
Each specification part may consist of a Technical Specification, with reference to Standards and legislation with supplements as required. Because many parts of the Master Specification cross-reference each other, individual parts are rarely used in isolation.
The Master Specification parts will also often reference DPTI Test Procedures, the DPTI Approved Products List and other Technical Standards and Guidelines.
Where can I find the Master Specification parts?
If you are contracted to DPTI, the relevant parts of the Master Specification will be included in the Technical Requirements section of the Contract Scope and Contract Requirements (CSCR),
All current parts of the Master Specification are available in pdf for general reference below.
Are the parts reviewed?
DPTI is responsible for regularly reviewing the content of the Master Specification parts for accuracy, conformance with legislative requirements and alignment with Australian and International standards.
Revisions to the Master Specification will not generally be applied in retrospect to existing contracts unless there is an urgent safety need, in which case the DPTI Contract Manager will manage the process of applying the revisions.
Can I make comments or suggestions?
Yes; you are welcome to make comments and provide feedback regarding any of the parts. Please contact your Contract Manager, or email your feedback to DPTI.MasterSpecification@sa.gov.au
You may copy and use these specifications; however, if you use these documents for any purpose which is not consistent with the above (in particular, using them in contracts where the Commissioner of Highways or Minister of Transport is not the Principal), you do so at your own risk.
DPTI makes no representations or warranty that the Specifications have been prepared with reasonable care and does not assume a duty of care to you. DPTI has no responsibility to inform you of any matter coming to DPTI's notice which may affect the quality of the Specifications in any way. By downloading any specification from this site, you acknowledge and agree to DPTI's Disclaimer
