Under security of payment legislation, the governments of NSW, Queensland, Victoria, A.C.T., Tasmania and South Australia have appointed Adjudicate Today to assist industry participants understand how the Acts operate and claim the protections and benefits provided by the Acts. We are also responsible for managing the dispute resolution (adjudication) process and training and appointing the judges (adjudicators).
Adjudicators appointed to the various State Adjudicate Today panels have received comprehensive training on the relevant Building & Construction Industry Payments Act. In Queensland they have undergone a comprehensive registration process conducted by the Adjudication Registrar. In addition, Adjudicate Today requires all adjudicators attend further workshops and training on an annual basis.
Under the Acts, we are called an Authorised Nominating Authority (ANA). Adjudicate Today's quality of service has been recognised by industry participants through their actions. More adjudication applications are referred to Adjudicate Today than any other ANA either in Australia or, we understand, anywhere in the world.
Since its inception, Adjudicate Today has not charged a fee to commence an adjudication application nor to provide information on the requirements of the Acts. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not charge an adminstration fee or like fee to industry participants. From the fee charged by the adjudicator, an amount is paid to Adjudicate Today for the various services provided, including promotion of the Act, signing and serving notices of acceptance;
accepting service of and serving on behalf of the Adjudicator any notices or other documents (including the Adjudicator's determination) in respect of or relating to an adjudication; issuing invoices and receiving adjudication fees; and communicating with the parties.
Information on the adjudication process is quickly available by contacting our highly trained and professional staff who will ensure all parties are aware of the relevant requirements of the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act, particularly the tight time frames in which applications and responses must be submitted and determined.
Please use our website as a tool in your business. In addition, our staff are always available to answer queries and assist with understanding the Acts.
