Experts sought for Infrastructure WA board positions

The WA Government is calling for expressions of interest to join the Infrastructure WA board, to provide independent advice to Government on the State’s long-term, job-creating infrastructure priorities.

The EOI seeks high calibre applicants with excellent leadership qualities and significant experience in infrastructure policy, planning, strategy, funding, financing and/or delivery.

The board of up to 10 members will comprise both public and private sector representatives.

As the governing body of Infrastructure WA, the board will advise Government on the State’s infrastructure needs and priorities, and ensure maximum value from every dollar spent by government agencies on major proposals.

Investment in infrastructure is critical in growing the economy, generating jobs, and supporting sustainable and vibrant communities. As Infrastructure WA chairperson-designate, John Langoulant AO will oversee the expression of interest process.

Infrastructure WA’s key roles include:

  • Preparing a 20-year State Infrastructure Strategy;
  • Assessing and reporting on major government infrastructure proposals prior to investment decisions being made;
  • Providing advice on infrastructure priorities and funding and financing options; and
  • Co-ordinating the State’s submissions to Infrastructure Australia.

Expressions of interest are being sought until May 31, 2019.
