Federal Government begins search for Infrastructure Commissioners

The Federal Government has begun the search for a chief commissioner and two commissioners to lead Infrastructure Australia (IA), the Commonwealth’s expert and independent infrastructure adviser.

This is part of the Government’s commitment to re-establishing IA as the pre-eminent adviser on nationally significant infrastructure planning and investment.

This was following an independent review conducted in 2022 by Ms Nicole Lockwood and Mr Mike Mrdak AO which recommended reforms to ensure IA can fully deliver on its responsibilities.

There will be a merit-based process to select the Commissioners  to ensure they have the appropriate skills, qualifications, knowledge and experience to lead and deliver on Infrastructure Australia’s mandate.

The commissioners will be supported by an advisory council with experts from infrastructure, experts from related sectors and senior public service officials.

The refreshed IA will better support infrastructure investment objectives through improved evaluation of infrastructure proposals and through providing a more targeted infrastructure priority list.

Applicants will be assessed by an Australian Government selection panel against specific criteria.

The decision to introduce three commissioners for IA will improve outcomes for Australians by strengthening the foundations for better decisions on significant infrastructure investment.

With these strengthened foundations, we can build the infrastructure Australia needs to connect people and opportunity, to connect people with each other, and to leave a lasting legacy.
