3-year Review into the National Cities Performance Framework

The National Cities Performance Framework (NCPF) was launched in 2017 with the commitment to conduct reviews every 3 years. The Bureau of Infrastructure and Transport Research Economics (BITRE) has now completed the first 3 Year Review and the Final paper is now available.


The conclusion of the NCPF review is that alternative products will meet the needs of stakeholders.  Targeted research will focus on issues of the highest priority to the government and cities’ stakeholders. The 2021 NCPF update will be available until at least mid-2022. The full findings can be found in the Final paper.


The consultation process has now been completed. To read about the issues considered, see the Consultation paper.
