Infrastructure WA

May 24
A new way forward

Our next presentation is a special lunch time presentation covering an issue top of mind to WA project managers:  discussing a new way forward for WA State Government capital projects prioritization and delivery.  

Prior to the last State election the then opposition promised to review the capital works program for the State and find a better way to prioritise investment across all portfolios and agencies.

The McGowan Government commissioned an enquiry (State Government Special Inquiry Government Program and Projects 2008-17 - The Langoulant Enquiry) to review previous Capital Works investments and where appropriate recommend improvements to Project Initiation and Controls going forward.

One of the Key Recommendations from the Review was:

The identification, prioritisation and development of the State’s infrastructure requirements must be enhanced.  Establish “Infrastructure WA” with a clear remit to assess periodically the adequacy of the State’s infrastructure base and future infrastructure needs across the short, medium and long terms.

We have an exciting opportunity to hear from Lance Glare, from the Department of Premier and Cabinet, with an update on the establishment Infrastructure WA.
