Planning and development guidelines (PDG)
The planning and development guidelines assist regions, program divisions, health service boards, agency managers and consultants in establishing a consistent approach and best practice to the management, planning, design and implementation of all capital investment projects regardless of size, cost, complexity and source of funds.
The guidelines are intended as guidelines rather than mandatory requirements. The mandatory requirements are contained in the policies and legislations applying to the planning, building and development industry.
Project planning is part of the capital investment cycle as set out in the Capital Project Life-cycle. It is concerned with the establishment of the business need and all pre-planning involved in developing a capital project.
