Approval process and timeframes – business case approval process

While approval times vary, it takes an average of three months to go through the approval process. It is expected that the DHBs will go through local/regional approval processes prior to national approval and endorsement.

Quarterly reporting

All approved ICT investments will be required to provide quarterly reporting as part of the conditions of endorsement. The Ministry is focused on capability improvement in IT delivery across the sector. Understanding project performance will inform future investment decisions and share lessons learnt to enable efficiency across the sector.
