Implementation, Building Capability

The implementation phase is where decisions are made regarding the design, procurement and delivery of infrastructure.

The design of infrastructure needs to be fit for purpose and also contribute to sustainable development. It should take into account the anticipated results of climate change including increased incidence and severity of storms, floods, droughts, sea level rise and storm surge, as well as the impacts over its life cycle of solutions that cause change (adverse or beneficial) to economic conditions, the environment, society or quality of life.

The procurement of infrastructure needs to be conducted in a fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective manner and promote sustainable development objectives. Procurement strategies, processes, procedures and methods need also to be managed in a manner that minimises the scourge of fraud and corruption.

Performance in the delivery of infrastructure needs to improve and optimal outcomes need to be delivered within available budgets. The choice of the contracting system can facilitate or frustrate performance.
