Recommendation 39

Improve project cost management


39. Ensure more efficient use of infrastructure funds by improving project cost management, including:

  1. establishing clear standards for setting project delivery time frames and cashflows at a program level that account for public and private sector capability and capacity
  2. replacing the current, individual project-based contingency management with a whole of government (or whole of state agency or government trading enterprise) based contingency management approach.
