Program (output) investment

You are preparing a business case for a program or output investment.

The type of business case required depends on the size and complexity of the proposal. ‘Size’ refers to the potential impact or value of the proposal and ‘complexity’ encompasses factors such as the risks involved, number of stakeholders impacted and implementation challenges.

Consider whether the size and/or complexity of the initiative is ‘significant’ or ‘insignificant’. The definition of what is ‘significant’ will depend on the portfolio and issues being addressed and will vary across your department.

Your departmental finance team should be able to provide you with advice on the size and complexity of your proposal.
