The project activities were directed by steering committee by taking necessary strategic decisions relating to scope, budget, approach and schedule. The committee would review and assess the progress of the project. Under the steering committee the Project management team functions and project working team would operate under this unit.
The entire asset maintenance and the activities of field staff in Gold Coast Water Operations are undertaken using dispatch system called CABS. The replacement of the existing CABS is being recommended as the present unit is reaching its serviceable life span and hence might not be able to meet the current requirements and demands from GCCC. Thus this project would help to eliminate the existing risks with the CABS itself. The solution is expected based on the new Mobile In Field Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). In comparison with CABS , MIDAS is an attractive option as it would tend to reduce the staff while creating necessary conditions that enables growth. In a long run it is said that CABS would result in higher business operational cost and inefficiencies, the MIDAS would drive the costs down. Also, it would support all the existing business needs and help in scalability to meet the needs through integrating the asset management system and better data collection systems. .

Works management Business continuity project
The Works Management Business Continuity Project will focus on an outsourced solution to remove the risk associated with the current system, CABS. The CABS system is used by the Operations and Maintenance Branch to manage asset maintenance work and staff involved in In-Field operations. CABS is reaching the end of its serviceable life, and may not meet the existing performance requirements of GCW through to the Water Reform. GCW is preparing a Business Continuity Plan to ensure the business of Dispatch and Works Management is maintained through to the Water Reform. Part of this plan is to have contingencies for key systems such as
