The National Infrastructure Unit

Page updated 18 Feb 2014

The National Infrastructure Unit was established in 2009 to deliver the government’s objectives relating to infrastructure. The Unit is based within Treasury, and its responsibilities include:

  • Formulating, and monitoring progress on, a 20-year National Infrastructure Plan (NIP);
  • Establishing robust and reliable cross-government frameworks for infrastructure project appraisal and capital asset management, and monitoring the implementation and use of those frameworks;
  • Providing support to, and acting as a secretariat for, the new National Infrastructure Advisory Board.

The Unit does not duplicate the role of other infrastructure-related government agencies. It works in co-operation with other government agencies and takes a cross sector, high level view of New Zealand infrastructure.

The Unit develops its policy advice to infrastructure Ministers in close co-operation with the National Infrastructure Advisory Board
