Over the course of the MLP process, you will engage with a number of teams who will be selected for their expertise relevant to the project. The diagram below shows who is involved at each stage of the process and the roles they play.
The MLP team sits within the Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning and has primary responsibility for administering the MLP framework. The team is proponent’s first point of contact and will work closely with colleagues across government to provide coordinated feedback on pre-submissions and assess Stage 1 proposals. The team also provides the secretariat function for the MLP Panel.

It has responsibility for inviting proponents to make a Stage 1 submission, considering the advice of assessment teams, and making recommendations about Stage 1 Market-Led Proposals to government. The MLP panel comprises senior government officials and current standing members are:
