Our Approach

  • Development of strategies based on key categories within expenditure and procurement/management.
  • Review of the 2012-2013 capital works program to establish a structured approach to upcoming projects.


  • Capital expenditure profile (including forecasts to 2017) encompassing key project delivery areas across major network growth and renewals projects.
  • In-depth description of existing and proposed procurement structure and methodologies, with a corporate-aligned schedule for 2012-2013.
