Business Case Approach guidance

Investing for benefits

Clarity of intent

Fit-for-purpose effort

Gathering information through informed discussions with appropriate stakeholders

Building the case for investment progressively

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and our investment partners use the Business Case Approach (BCA) to guide our planning, investment and project development processes. This guidance is to help you understand the BCA and how to use it when developing business cases for investment through the National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).

How to use this guidance

Our BCA provides flexible building blocks, and once you are familiar with the principles and requirements you will be better able to adapt it to your particular situation and proposed investment. 

This guidance is designed to be used alongside online training modules developed by Waka Kotahi, which are available to our partner organisations.

Contact us to request access to the modules.
