Once you've considered the guidelines and completed relevant templates, you can make a submission using our online portal.

Assessment Process

Infrastructure Australia follows the same process for every initiative or project we assess. This is as follows:

  1. A nominator provides a submission to Infrastructure Australia for assessment;
  2. Infrastructure Australia undertakes an initial review of the submission and seeks clarification and/or further information from the nominator;
  3. The submission and any additional information provided is assessed by Infrastructure Australia. Further information is requested from the nominator if needed;
  4. Infrastructure Australia's Chief Executive Officer prepares a recommendation for consideration by the IA Board;
  5. The Infrastructure Australia Board evaluates the submission and makes determination;
  6. For project submissions (submissions with a full business case), a project evaluation summary is provided to the project nominator for a fact and commercial-in-confidence check;
  7. After this process is complete, the project evaluation summary is published on the Project Assessments page of our website; and
  8. The Infrastructure Priority List is updated to reflect Infrastructure Australia 's decision.
