Process to apply for major project status

An application for major project status must contain project and company details as outlined in attachment A.

The application for major project status should be addressed to:

Major project status application
Strategic Infrastructure and Projects
Department of Trade, Business and Innovation
GPO Box 3200
Darwin NT 0801

The process for consideration of applications for major project status is outlined in attachment B.

The assessment of the application is undertaken by SIP in consultation with relevant agencies.

At any time through the assessment process, project proponents may be required to provide additional or clarification information including by way of presentation. Project proponents should note that incomplete applications requiring additional or clarification information may delay the assessment process.

Following assessment and evaluation, a report is submitted for consideration by a government committee comprising chief executive officers (CEO) of relevant agencies, the Jobs Sub Committee (CEO JSC). The CEO JSC will provide a recommendation to the NT Government as to the granting of major project status.

Once a decision has been made, this is communicated to the proponent.
