Confirming the project is a priority
Before committing resources and funds towards a particular initiative, you should formally confirm the project is a current organizational priority, including seeking approval to:
- start a business-as-usual project
- develop an internal short-form case for investment in and approval of low complexity projects, or
- develop a case for investment of resources and funding for the preparation of either a preliminary or full business case for medium complexity and high-value-high-risk (HVHR) projects.

Using the template
The Project Prioritisation Confirmation template can be used for all types of projects and for a variety of purposes such as:
- to seek sign-off to start a business-as-usual project
- to seek approval to prepare an internal funding submission for low complexity projects, or
- to seek approval to prepare an internal funding submission to develop a business case for more complex projects and/or projects seeking external funding from government. Projects seeking funding from government are required to prepare a full business based on DTF guidance.
Further guidance on how to confirm the project is an organisational priority is outlined within the template.
