QUU Tightens Submission Requirements – But we’re ready

Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) have announced that as of 1st of October 2018, they will only accept submissions that have been ‘properly made’ – applications which comply with the QUU’s completeness guidelines. 

This sounds simple, but it turns out that as low as 15% of submissions meet these guidelines.  That’s 85% of submissions rejected on the spot, prior to review. Luckily QUU have published a ‘Check for Completeness Guideline’ available via pdf here.

As QUU Endorsed Consultants, we’re certified experts in the QUU design, documentation, & submission process. If you’re looking for a smooth & easy QUU experience, get in touch with us right away!
