BBC expert practitioner and reviewer pilot

In 2014, Treasury launched an endorsed expert BBC practitioner/reviewer approach; this was intended to provide agencies developing business cases with a list of experienced and trained Better Business Cases consultants while BBC was being launched and implemented in New Zealand.

Treasury has now ceased the expert practitioner/reviewer certification process, for several reasons.

  • Certification of experts was a complex process run on NZ's behalf by the specialist BBC developers from the UK.  New Zealand was the only BBC jurisdiction to implement certification.
  • The UK-based expert certification is no longer available (those involved have retired)
  • Maintaining the 'experts' list but not certifying new experts was seen as giving an unfair advantage to existing practitioners
  • Better Business Cases have now been in NZ since 2010; the level of expertise and number of experienced practitioners has risen significantly and arguably the pool of experienced practitioners is large enough that designated 'experts' are no longer required.
