Planning and investing for outcomes has an emphasis on influencing planning, partnering for investment and enhancing investment performance.
The Long Term Strategic View captures the pressure points and key economic, environmental, and population factors that will shape the transport system we need for the future.
The Planning & Investment Knowledge Base sets out the policies, principles and processes for all investment from the National Land Transport Fund in land transport. This guides all organisations to plan and develop the activities for which they seek funding assistance from the Transport Agency.
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.
The National Land Transport Programme (NLTP) is our key commitment with the sector for how we will use national land transport funding to provide all users of the transport system with a safe, integrated network they can rely on.
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 2015–18 NLTP focuses on four themes, underpinned by the continued emphasis on value for money: encouraging economic growth and productivity; making journeys safer; shaping smart transport choices; and effective and resilient networks.
Planning and investing in the land transport system are key roles in meeting our responsibility as set out by government in the Land Transport Management Act.
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.
