CFI - Project Governance Board

The Project Governance Board (PGB) has a collective management responsibility and will be established for all major capital facilities projects.

The purpose of the PGB is to provide guidance to the Project Director and a forum for senior level liaison with input to the project by sponsors, users and senior Defence management.

The PGB typically sits once per quarter per project, noting that meetings may be required more often during the early stages of a complex project.

The PGB is chaired by Director General Capital Facilities Infrastructure Branch (DGCFI) or their representative.
