Infrastructure SA is introducing rigour and consistency around infrastructure identification, evaluation and implementation.
Our assurance process comprises a series of point-in-time ‘gateway’ checks designed to give the South Australian Government early and continuous oversight of risk management and performance, and to provide agencies with support through expert reviewer recommendations when projects experience downside pressures.
From the initiation of a project or program, the Infrastructure SA Assurance Framework will monitor delivery performance and measure actual, final benefits against those assumed when the investment decision was made. This provides a range of advantages as shown below.
In support of the Infrastructure SA Assurance Framework, Cabinet has also approved:
- A new Premier and Cabinet Circular - PC049 Infrastructure SA Major Project Assurance Framework
- An amended Treasurer’s Instruction TI-17 - Evaluation of and Approvals to Proceed with Public Sector Initiatives
Guidance material for the implementation of the framework will be available here soon. Please contact the Assurance team for further information in the interim.
