Career Summary

Biography

Marcus Jefferies completed his Research Masters Degree in 2003. The research investigated risk and success factors of the Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) approach to relationship contracting and used several case studies of Sydneys infrastructure for the 2000 Olympic Games. He was awarded the 2004 Chartered Institute of Building certificate of excellence and the 2004 Australian Institute of Building (AIB) NSW Chapter Medal for this research. He also published five peer reviewed papers from his thesis. Marcus was a Chief Investigator (CI) on a recently completed an Australian Research Council Linkage Project (ARC-LP) that analysed risk management techniques used during the bidding process for the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) procurement model. The two-year project had a cash contribution of $235,000 and involved mainly private sector industry partners, including the three largest Australian construction contractors. The project successfully produced 10 peer reviewed papers. Marcus is a current CI on an ARC-LP entitled Reforming the procurement of the construction and financing of Australian infrastructure: Advancing capacity, competition and investment. This is a three year project, first funded in 2009 with a cash contribution from the ARC of $313,650 and a combined cash and in-kind contribution from the fifteen Industry Partners of over $1million. The project is the first of its kind, in that it has unprecedented Industry Partner representation from the Treasury Departments of each of the Australian States and Territories as well as the nations peak infrastructure body, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia (IPA), which represents both public and private sector stakeholders responsible for the procurement of Australias infrastructure. Marcus is currently involved in a consultancy-based research project with Ryde Council that is focusing on the Top Ryde PPP project. The research is identifying successful risk management techniques in Relationship Contracting by focusing on best practice PPP projects. The Top Ryde PPP is among the first of its kind in Australia in that the main Public Sector stakeholder is at local authority level, Ryde Council, as opposed to State Government. He previously assumed the role of Program Convenor, a teaching, quality assurance administration role, for the Construction Management Degree Program at the University of Newcastle. He also sits on various committees including Faculty Board and Marketing and Partnerships. He is also a member of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Built Environment Research (CIBER), under the leadership of the centre Director Prof. Michael Ostwald, an ARC fellow who mentors early career researchers. He also teaches mainly into the Construction Management Degree Program and coordinates courses (subjects) such as Construction Procurement and Tendering (ARBE2309) and Contract Administration (ARBE3308). He is also an active member of various professional bodies, and has sat on the State Committee for the NSW Chapter of the Australian Institute of Building and presents CPD seminars for both the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Master Building Association (MBA). In 2003 Marcus won the AIB Wilson Memorial Prize for the best refereed paper published in the Australian Journal of Construction Economics and Building. He is a member of the Technical Committee of Working Commission W92 Procurement Systems of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) and is a reviewer for several international Journals including Construction Management and Economics, Journal of Construction Procurement and International Journal of Managing Projects in Business. He is also a current ARC Assessor and has been involved in the annual review of Linkage and Discovery project grant applications since 2010. Prior to entering Academia he worked in the construction industry for over 10 years as a Site Engineer on the new Chek Lap Kok Airport in Hong Kong and for various Construction Contractors and Developers in the UK.

Research expertise

Marcus Jefferies has a significant track record in the area of construction procurement and has published over 50 peer reviewed papers predominantly in this area. He completed a Masters of Building (by Research) investigating risk and success factors in Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) that focused on the Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) procurement approach to deliver infrastructure for 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. He is currently enrolled (having completed 2 years full-time equivalent of study) on a part-time PhD program at the University of Newcastle examining risk management during the bidding stage of social infrastructure PPPs.

He was a Chief Investigator (CI) on a recently completed ARC Linkage Project (LP0455456) that investigated the high bidding costs of social infrastructure projects delivered using the PPP procurement approach and included most of the main Australian construction contractors as Industry Partners. He is also a CI on a current ARC Linkage Project (LP0989743) that has been funded for 3 years and is investigating the procurement of Australian infrastructure by advancing capacity, competition and investment and includes all of the Australian State Treasury Departments as industry partners. He was also a CI on a CRC-Construction Innovation project, completed in 2006, that investigated 'Value in Project Delivery Systems: Facilitating a change in Culture' which specifically focused on key procurement drivers such as project teams, culture and trust within the context of relationship-based procurement systems such as Alliancing and Partnering. The project included research partners from both the public and private sectors of government and industry.

In 2003 he won the Australian Institute of Building (AIB) Wilson Memorial Prize for the best refereed paper published in the Australian Journal of Construction Economics and Building. In 2004 he was awarded the AIB NSW Chapter Medal for research and also received the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Certificate of Excellence for Postgraduate Research. He is a member of the Technical Committee of Working Commission W92 'Procurement Systems' of the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB) and is a reviewer for several international Journals including 'Construction Management and Economics', 'Journal of Construction Procurement' and 'International Journal of Managing Projects in Business'.
