MLP criteria

The key criteria that will be used to consider your initial proposal are:

  • alignment with government policy, priority and community need
  • justification for direct negotiation
  • value for money and;
  • your capacity and capability to deliver the project.

If your proposal progresses to Stage 2 it will also be assessed in relation to:

  • the risk and cost allocation and;
  • feasibility of the proposal.

At all stages, the government will also consider:

  • whether any other proposal addressing the same need, or proposing a similar outcome, is under active consideration by government and;
  • if the proposal is a genuine commercial proposition requiring the support of government and that it is unsuited to existing funding mechanisms.
