Strong Leadership In Developing Infrastructure Proposals

30 August 2016

Building Queensland is leading the charge to improve the way the Queensland Government develops infrastructure proposals having developed its own best practice Business Case Development Framework.

The Business Case Development Framework, released in April, includes templates and guidance to support the development of Strategic, Preliminary and Detailed Business Cases.

Building Queensland’s Detailed Business Case template and guidance was followed during the development of the Cross River Rail and ETCS – Inner City business cases completed in mid 2016 — both projects now have a funding commitment from the Queensland Government.

Building Queensland has undertaken an extensive engagement program to improve the development of infrastructure proposals by Queensland Government agencies, government owned corporations and nominated statutory authorities. A series of workshops were run throughout August to assist agencies in using the Business Case Development Framework. Some of the topics addressed in the workshops included:

  • How to develop an Investment Logic Map
  • Requirements for economic analysis
  • How to measure and document social impacts
  • Tips for preparing business cases that meet State and Federal assessment requirements.

Building Queensland will periodically refine and enhance the Business Case Development Framework as we continue to engage with stakeholders and respond to changes in international best practice and the economic landscape.

Formal information and education sessions will continue to be delivered to inform and discuss the Framework. If you are interested in finding out more about the Framework please contact Suzanne Ford on 07 3237 7500 or email.
