Throughout all stages of the transport planning and project delivery process, it is essential to consider how performance will be measured. Under the Transport Agency’s Business Case Approach (BCA), early identification of measures for the expected benefits is a key step in planning an investment.
We have developed this list of performance measures to make it easy for us (the Transport Agency and our investment partners) to identify appropriate benefits and performance measures when developing business cases for transport investment.
When developing investment proposals following the BCA, the list can be used to select performance measures for benefits that have been identified in the strategic case, possibly at investment logic mapping and benefits mapping workshops.
The benefits in this list are replicated in Transport Investment Online(external link) (TIO) in the activity outline. These benefits determine available results alignment (see Developing an assessment profile for further details).
For improvement activities required to have performance measures in TIO, the list can be used to select performance measures for the main benefits of the proposed investment.
The Transport Agency identifies and quantifies social benefits rising from a proposed investment and accounts for them in the decision process. The information captured will be used for benefits and investment reporting, and it will enable us to see over time the benefits received from land transport investments.
How to select performance measures for improvement activities:
Contact your Transport Agency investment advisor to discuss the suitability of measures and descriptions when developing your own.
The framework is divided into five outcome classes. Each outcome class is further divided into investment benefits with performance measures provided for each of them.
