What is Infrastructure Australia’s role in assessing proposals?
Infrastructure Australia is an independent advisory body. We evaluate and prioritise infrastructure proposals in order to identify the most important infrastructure investments Australia needs over the next 15 years, based on a rigorous evaluation of:
- Strategic fit
- Economic, social and environmental value
When we positively evaluate a proposal, we add it to the Infrastructure Priority List. The list guides decision-makers on the most needed investments to secure Australia’s continued prosperity.
How do I submit a proposal to the Infrastructure Priority List?
The Priority List is a live document and is updated regularly on our website. Early each year, however, we release a publication of the Priority List that includes summaries of each project and initiative.
The closing date for submissions for the 2020 publication was on 31 August 2019. Submissions received after this date will still be assessed, but may not considered in time for the 2020 publication.
We welcome proposals for all types of infrastructure, including programs of related works and programs for network optimization.
To submit a proposal, review our submission stages and find out which stage is most relevant to you. From here you can also download the templates and checklists you will need for your submission.
Our detailed submission guidelines explain what information and data you need to include in your submission, for every stage of the process.
Once you've completed the relevant templates and checked that you’ve included all the information you need, you can email your submission to Infrastructure Australia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where can I find examples of projects Infrastructure Australia has assessed?
You can search the live Infrastructure Priority List, which is regularly updated, to see which investments have been prioritised across the country.
You can view past evaluations to see what the Infrastructure Australia Board has evaluated and why the decision was made.
