Infrastructure NSW was established in July 2011 to assist the NSW Government in identifying, prioritising and delivering critical public infrastructure for NSW. Infrastructure NSW's responsibilities are conferred by legislation under the Infrastructure NSW Act 2011.
Infrastructure NSW is managing the delivery of the transformation of Sydney's convention, exhibition and entertainment precinct on behalf of the NSW Government.
The Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Andrew Constance, has ministerial responsibility for the project.
Infrastructure NSW established a Steering Committee comprising independent representatives and senior government officials to oversee the delivery of the project. The Committee reports to the Infrastructure NSW CEO and its role includes oversight of the project development and procurement processes, with an ongoing role during delivery.
A Design Review Panel established by Infrastructure NSW also helped to review concepts during the tender phase. Its role is ongoing and includes reviewing Darling Harbour Live's development documentation and providing specialist advice throughout the project. The Design Review Panel is chaired by the NSW Government Architect and comprises two other specialist architects.
