Review team selection and engagement
The reviewers will be chosen according to the skills required for a particular project undergoing a Gateway Review and the relevant stage of the project lifecycle.
When identified for possible engagement in a review, we will contact you to determine the potential reviewer’s suitability and availability for the review. The Treasury is under no obligation to appoint an applicant, including when we have initiated discussions with the potential reviewer.
In selecting potential members of a review team, we will consider if the potential reviewer:
- has the required skills and experience for the programme/project being reviewed
- holds the appropriate level of security clearance required
- has the ability to quickly establish effective working relationships in a small team environment
- can agree to follow the Gateway methodology in the Treasury’s Gateway Review Process workbooks
- is willing to sign a Letter of Engagement with the Treasury, which includes signing a deed of confidentiality and compliance, and a conflict-of-interest declaration.
Daily rate for private sector reviewers
The Treasury will pay a daily rate to private sector reviewers, depending on their skills and experience. We will choose available reviewers who in their opinion represent best value for money for a given assignment. Fees will be negotiated and agreed prior to executing the Letter of Agreement.
