1. Gateway review process overview

Planning and development of capital assets is to comply with the gateway review process. Gateway reviews are a state government initiative to improve planning selection, management and investment for the state of Victoria.

The review process establishes a best practice, consistent approach to capital investment, with the focus being delivery of scope, time and budget within a robust risk management framework.

The gateway review process aligns with six key decision points in a project's lifecycle to assure successful project delivery. The details associated with six reviews are available on the gateway review website. The sequence of gateway reviews is shown in Figure: Gateway review process below and further details are provided in the gateway review table.
