Project Planning - the first step of Planning in the CFI Development and Delivery Framework (Traditional Delivery). The Estate Investment Proposal (EIP) developed by Estate Planning progresses to Capital Facilities Infrastructure (CFI) Branch for further planning and development of the Defence Infrastructure requirement. Key activities include developing a Project Development and Delivery Plan (PDDP) that outlines the proposed contracting methodologies and risks associated with the development and delivery of the project, an Evaluation Plan for all procurement requirements in the project, and obtaining Financial Approvals via a Proposal and Procurement Approval Financial Submission for the Development Phase of the project. The key documents are subject to Executive Review and Approval requirements.
Assess Project Requirements and Contracting Strategies and determine timeline for development/delivery as appropriate (include time required to complete Government Approval and PWC Clearance or PWC Notification requirements)
The CIOG/CFI Liaison Cell will then recommend whether the following steps need to be taken and work closely to guide you through the process:
Note: The CIOG/CFI Liaison Cell still need to be notified where no Active ICT or AV requirements have been identified for a project.
Using the Defence Simulation Manual assess specific simulation needs including Facilities Infrastructure and ICT Infrastructure considerations as part of your overall project assessment.
Note: Policy owners at Simulation Branch, Joint Capability Coordination Division can provide any additional advice.
Desktop assessment of specific Project Security risks and requirements. Review applicable eDSM requirements. Contact local DSA Representative, if required.
Liaise with Regional EMOS managers to estimate the costs, if applicable and develop a strategy for early EMOS engagement in CFI Project. (Involvement is likely to include participation in design reviews, O&MM reviews and Project DLP requirements.)
