Our recommendations

Making infrastructure investment decisions quickly.

We recommend that the Treasury:

  1. establish regular public reporting on the progress of the full New Zealand Upgrade Programme and periodically report on the performance of all significant investments that have had or that require Cabinet-level consideration;
  2. seek feedback from relevant agencies on how useful they find the Treasury’s guidance on expediting decision-making and review that guidance regularly to ensure that it remains fit for purpose; and
  3. consider whether the Investment Management System should include minimum requirements and guidance for setting up and running contestable funding processes.
