Who we are

Infrastructure Australia was established in 2008 to advise governments, industry and the community on the investments and reforms needed to deliver better infrastructure for all Australians.

We have two key functions:

  • The first is to evaluate business cases for nationally significant investment proposals for inclusion on the Infrastructure Priority List and assess proposals seeking more than $250 million in Australian Government funding.

  • The second is to set the policy agenda on the long-term opportunities for infrastructure reform that will improve living standards and national productivity.

Our organisation is led by an independent Board and CEO.  

Infrastructure Australia’s board members are drawn from business, academia and across the public and private sectors, and represent an array of sectors and jurisdictions.

Our Chief Executive Officer Adam Copp reports to the Infrastructure Australia Board, and is supported by an executive leadership team overseeing four business functions.
