Deputy Minister’s Industry Infrastructure Forum (DMIIF)
The Deputy Minister’s Industry Infrastructure Forum (DMIIF) was created in January of 2013 in response to calls from British Columbia’s industrial, commercial, and institutional construction industry for a stronger relationship with the provincial government.
The group consults, discusses and shares information and ideas related to improving government’s infrastructure procurement practices and use of construction-industry resources. The DMIIF ensures investments are delivered with the best value for the taxpayer via fair, competitive and transparent procurement processes.
After a brief hiatus during the recent election period, the DMIIF brings together Deputy Ministers from the six big infrastructure ministries with industry representatives to work together on big issues that impact the construction industry. Initiated by BCCA, the group meets several times per year. The current DMIIF co-chair is Roger Yager
The committee has representatives from both government and industry.
