NZ Infrastructure Commission publish Lifting Our Gaze
The NZ Infrastructure Commission published the report Lifting our Gaze last week.
EY was commissioned to explore the role of infrastructure investment as a catalyst for delivering wider public outcomes for New Zealand.
This report finds that consideration of broader social outcomes will require a concerted effort by Government procuring agencies, the construction industry and the wider infrastructure community. It also examines the shift in mindset required to consider infrastructure investment from a pan-Government perspective – including to challenge current Budget and business case processes.
The report is closely aligned with other Government and industry initiatives such as the revised Government Procurement Rules, the Construction Sector Accord and the Living Standards Framework, and is intended to foster conversations among agencies and across the industry about how to start putting these ideas into practice.
