A set of guiding questions were prepared by the reviewers to assist in the consultation process, and can be accessed below. The questions were intended to initiate discussion, rather than limit it, and the reviewers welcomed all feedback, including on matters not covered in the enclosed questions.
The independent review received 59 submissions. Submissions have been published on this page for transparency, unless the individual or organisation requested otherwise.

What will be the outcome of this consultation?Submissions were used to help inform the independent review.
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.
