The Transport Agency and our investment partners use the Business Case Approach (BCA) to guide our planning, investment and project development processes. This section provides guidance on how the BCA works and what is required.
The Transport Agency collects transport data from investment partners as well as a range of government and non-government sources. This information, in the form of tables, reports and interactive tools, is useful to decision makers across the land transport sector.
Through our research programme we invest in innovative and relevant research that plays a critical role at the forefront of land transport thinking and contributes to achieving the government’s goals for transport.
An important part of the planning and investing process is the monitoring of the government’s investment in the land transport system.
The NZ Transport Agency has a legal obligation to audit organisations that are funded through the National Land Transport Programme. The audits typically take place on a cycle of two to four years. The current audit programme includes investment audits, post-implementation reviews and assurance reviews.
The information and resources on this page help to explain the Transport Agency’s Investment Assessment Framework (IAF) for the 2018–21 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) and our approach around making investment decisions.
