Feasibility & Business Cases
The NSW Government established the Gateway Process in 2004 as an independent assurance process for capital projects that had a value of $10 million or more. The process has been designed to mitigate the risks associated with investing and delivering major projects. It involves an independent panel of industry experts assessing projects at seven key points through their lifecycle – from inception through to funding, delivery and benefit realisation.
MI has participated in a number of key NSW Government projects including: a Gate 1 (Need Analysis) review for Parkes Special Activation Precinct, associated with a future inland-rail project; a Gate 2 (Funding Approval) review for the Blackwattle Bay (Sydney Fish Markets) redevelopment and Sydney Showgrounds Masterplan; and a Post Implementation Review of the International Convention Centre. MI provided experts to be key members of the Gateway team, reviewing the proposals and providing valuable insights and input into the final recommendations.
Each of the Gateway reports completed by the panel assist Government in assessing how each of the projects align with the broader government strategies and ultimately provide value for money for the NSW taxpayer.
