Implementation of the National Infrastructure Plan 2011
Page updated 29 Apr 2013
Since the release of the Plan in July 2011, the National Infrastructure Unit (NIU) has been rolling out a work programme, with other agencies and infrastructure stakeholders, to achieve the vision and outcomes of the Plan.
The work programme is long term in nature and has been sequenced and prioritised to ensure it is manageable and will gain maximum benefit.
Underpinning the work programme is a focus on ensuring that the next edition of the Plan is underpinned by a more robust range and quality of information about the state and performance of our existing infrastructure network and the drivers of demand or future needs on our infrastructure network; and that it demonstrates increased collaboration and understanding between central government, local government and the private sector.
In November 2012, the NIU released a progress report summarising developments since the release of the 2011 Plan and identifying the key areas for focus looking ahead. Infrastructure 2012: National State of Infrastructure Report also includes an overview from the National Infrastructure Advisory Board and a series of think-pieces from the Board to promote discussion on topical issues and challenges.
For more information see: Infrastructure 2012: National State of Infrastructure Report.
Current State of Play
The 2013 work programme focuses on three areas:
- Work area 1: on-going engagement with stakeholders, especially the private sector and Local Government.
- Work area 2: working with the infrastructure agencies to progress coordinated work programmes to achieve the goals for each sector.
- Work area 3: progressing the eight actions identified in the Plan, with a priority given to five actions, either because of their importance in the current environment or their criticality to the long term direction of the Plan. The five priority workstreams are:
- Capital Intentions Plan (action 1)
- Demand Management (action 2)
- Performance Indicators Framework (actions 3 and 4)
- Scenario modelling/trends (action 6)
- Resilience (action 7)
Alongside and as part of these work areas, the NIU is involved in a range of other infrastructure policy work related to the Plan, including the various Christchurch and Auckland plans, Resource Management Act reforms and housing affordability, the Productivity Commission enquiries on local government regulation (and previous enquiries on housing and freight), the Better Local Government reforms, current and potential Public/Private Partnerships (PPPs), the TSO/TCA review and 700MHz spectrum auction in the telecommunications sector, oil security and energy sector resilience, long term Transport investment in a constrained fiscal environment, and progressing the Capital Asset Management (CAM) programme - including application of the Better Business Case methodology.
