The Government Investment Portfolio

The government investment portfolio has grown since last year, now comprising 508 investment projects with a whole-of-life cost of $87.3 billion.

The number of projects has grown from 409 to 508, an increase of 24%. The whole-of-life cost (WOLC) has grown from $74.3 billion to $87.3 billion, an increase of 15%.

The portfolio comprises the most significant investment projects that government is delivering - generally, those that are over $15 million, high in risk, and/or strategically important to government priorities[2].

It covers government departments, Crown entities, and companies listed on Schedule 4A of the Public Finance Act (for example, Ōtākaro Limited).

The Treasury collects data on these investments three times per year, and uses this information to analyse and advise on the portfolio.

There has been an ongoing improvement in the quality of reporting from agencies on their investment activity, which has contributed to the large increase in the number of projects in the portfolio.
