  • Need for the project – what problem the project is seeking to address
  • Financial performance – the viability of the underlying business and the proposed project
  • Value for money and the need for public funding- what extent does the project proposal offer good value for money?
  • Project sustainability and impacts-economic, social and environmental sustainability and impact of the project
