Welcome to the National Infrastructure Unit

The government's objective is that, by 2030, New Zealand’s infrastructure should be resilient and coordinated and contribute to growth and increased quality of life. This will be achieved through better use of existing assets and better allocation of new investment, as set out in the 2011 National Infrastructure Plan.

Underpinning these objectives is the work of the Treasury’s infrastructure teams. On this website you can find information relating to this work, including:

Topics of Interest

Public Private Partnerships
 In the New Zealand context, a Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a long term contract for the delivery of a service, where provision of the service requires the construction of a new asset, or enhancement of an existing asset, that is financed from external (private) sources on a non-recourse basis, and full legal ownership of the asset is retained by the Crown. 
The primary purpose of PPP procurement is to improve the delivery of service outcomes from major public infrastructure assets.  The Treasury’s website contains the Standard Form PPP Project Agreement and other useful information regarding the PPP Programme.
The National Infrastructure Plan

The Plan is designed to reduce uncertainty for businesses by outlining the Government's intentions for infrastructure development over a 20-year timeframe. The Plan is directional rather than directive, that is, it provides a framework for infrastructure development rather than a detailed list of projects.
