The Issue

On 22 July 2022, the Australian Government announced an independent review of Infrastructure Australia (the Review). The Review was commissioned to consider Infrastructure Australia's role as an independent adviser to the Commonwealth on nationally significant infrastructure priorities and advise on what changes may be needed to Infrastructure Australia's focus, priorities and, if necessary, legislation.

The purpose of the Review is to ensure that Infrastructure Australia is positioned to achieve its core purpose—to provide quality, independent cross-sectoral advice to the Australian Government on nationally significant infrastructure that supports the economy, builds the nation and addresses the challenges and opportunities of the future.

The Terms of Reference (ToR) for the Review are below.
