Better Business Cases – Significant Investment Proposal – Business Case Scoping Document

Formats and related files

As part of the Strategic Assessment, or as part of developing the Strategic Case for a business case, we recommend that agencies use the Business Case Scoping document to agree the business case approach with their Monitoring Agency or Treasury Vote Analyst.

This discussion agrees:

  • the business case pathway (what business case stages are required, eg, IBC/DBC/ImBC / SSBC/ImBC)

  • the decision pathway (what decisions are required and who must make them, eg, Cabinet)

  • methods (and tools) and effort required for the business case

  • assurance pathway, including project eligibility for Gateway reviews, and requirements for Assurance Plans and Independent Quality Assurance (IQA).
