The Queensland Budget 2022–23 includes a $59 billion investment in infrastructure over 4 years to 2025–26. The government plans to use the private sector to manage and deliver some of these projects. It is therefore crucial that entities manage risks through the life cycle of these projects to ensure successful delivery.

This can be achieved through the appropriate transfer of risk to another party to manage.
