Recommendation 40

Review the potential to use private sector finance and funding sources


40. Increase the total available pool of public infrastructure finance and funding by reviewing the potential to use private sector finance and funding sources, including:

  1. investigating asset recycling through divesting suitable assets, such as underused buildings and land, with proceeds used to fund new infrastructure
  2. developing whole of government principles to inform the prioritisation of state funding contributions where these facilitate strategic private sector investment.
