About us

With Victoria's strong population growth and demand for services within the justice portfolio increasing at unprecedented rates, the scale of the infrastructure required to support this demand has never been more significant.  The Community Safety Building Authority (CSBA) has been established to support the transformation required to create a public service that is more connected, agile and mobile to respond to these challenges.

The CSBA will support the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) by planning, designing, procuring and building new infrastructure assets as well as modernising and upgrading existing ones. CBSA will look for opportunities to support DJCS to deliver the targeted responses Victorians need through innovation in victim centred system design and precinct based localised delivery of integrated services.

Delivery of the program is executed in a manner consistent with applicable government approval requirements and policy, and according to priorities specified by DJCS.

The role is required to establish and deploy project and program staff to meet the requirements of the CSBA delivery programme. This includes full accountability for project performance and setting the strategic direction to create a dynamic and productive workforce culture.
