Comprehensive front-end planning activities are fundamental to project success.
As Government’s trusted independent advisor throughout the investment life cycle, Office of Projects Victoria (OPV) advocates de-risking of projects by effectively integrating front end engineering and design activities into the project planning stages so that project teams’ maturity of technical knowledge is developed along key stages.
OPV’s guidance material focuses on best practice in project planning and articulates expected technical information to project teams and Gateway Review Teams covering:
- Site investigation and existing conditions activities at key stages of the project; and
- Project scope based on the information obtained via robust front-end planning activities.
