Please be advised that this website is currently under review by the Head OPS Administration and as such numerous documents have been removed and will be replaced by more up to date versions or as with many others such as Policies and Procedures, completely eliminated.

Very shortly a new "OPS - The Foundation for Sustainable Infrastructure" document will be loaded which will replace many of the removed documents, including the OPS Handout - Instructions documents.  These changes will include the action items from the 2013-14 OPS Review Recommendations as contained in the attached OPS Communication - 2015-05-21 document .
