Think: Investment Possibilities
Page updated 23 Feb 2017
In our experience, the more time and effort put into thinking early in the process, the better the investment process goes.
If your government agency is giving serious consideration to a major investment or upgrade, then you should engage with the IMAP team at the Treasury.
We will work with you to understand the drivers influencing your decision-making and to explore the investment possibilities. This involves anticipating as much as possible what will be required to define your project or programme, and to get to your desired outcome.
Part of the Treasury's role is to analyse the information from across all government agencies to establish an overview of investment intentions and to identify common groupings of potential investment activity. Our work in this area helps manage the Crown's balance sheet more efficiently and effectively. We are particularly interested in understanding if the benefits promised at the outset are realised after implementation.
In this section, we cover the:
- Government Project Portfolio approach
- Critical importance of completing a Risk Profile Assessment (RPA) and what your agency responsibilities are if your project/programme is deemed high risk.
- Investment Panel process
- Government Investment Ministers
- Data Collection process
- Long Term Investment Plans
