Investment Publications and Data

Page updated 20 Jan 2017

Sharing information on significant investments increases the transparency and understanding of the government's business, and drives improvement in the quality of the government's intentions.

In 2011 Cabinet approved the Declaration on Open and Transparent Government, committing to actively releasing high value public data: "Public service and non-public service departments are directed and State services agencies encouraged to commit to the release of high value public data for re-use in accordance with the declaration and principles". More recently, on August 2013, the Prime Minister expressed the Government's intention to join the Open Government Partnership (OGP), which is an international platform for domestic reformers committed to making their governments more open, accountable, and responsive to citizens. In this context of open government direction setting, there is an opportunity to be more innovative and transparent around investment management.

To align with this intention, the Investment Management and Asset Performance team will regularly publish information on the government's pipeline of potential and existing investments, the Investor Confidence Rating results of investment-intensive agencies, and status and performance information on major projects/programmes monitored by the Treasury.

Investment Strategy

Decisions on significant investments are underpinned by the Investment Strategy. The Investment Strategy outlines the expectations that Cabinet has for the State Sector to manage the Crown's portfolio of assets. It contains 11 principles that are to be used by decision makers and those managing the Government's significant assets across Government. It guides the selection, decision making and management of the Government's investment portfolio. The intent is to direct government resources to where they create the most value.

Investment Pipeline

The Investment Pipeline provides an indication of potential and existing capital investments indicated for the current and upcoming fiscal years. Potential investments identified in the report are not commitments, but are forecast intentions that will likely change over time. The Investment Management and Asset Performance team tracks forecast intentions and updates this report regularly.
