We surveyed 13 entities to get information on how 102 major projects (with a TEI of $100 million or more) are performing against their expected cost, timeframes and scope.
This includes 11 new projects, 82 existing projects and 9 completed projects that are collectively worth $99.8 billion.
This chapter explores changes to these projects' cost, time and scope to date.
We collected information on each project’s key documents, such as business cases and benefits management plans.
In this chapter, we discuss how much the government spends on major projects and how transparently the Department of Treasury and Finance (DTF) and responsible entities report this information to Parliament and the community.
