ISNI is a rolling ten-year plan that sets out the Executive’s approach to planning, financing and delivering its programme of long-term infrastructure investment across the region. Its scope encompasses every area of government including education, health, transport and the environment.
It is developed alongside the Executive’s Programme for Government and the Budget as part of the Executive’s long-term planning. The current ISNI was published in the NI Assembly in October 2012 and more than £14.8 billion will have been invested by the end of that plan period in March 2021; providing an important stimulus to the local construction industry.
Work is underway to update ISNI to reflect the Executive’s capital investment priorities for the decade ahead. Challenges include continuing to:
- support economic recovery and growth;
- maximise the social benefits of investment for all;
- create opportunities and tackle disadvantage;
- deliver high quality and efficient public services; and
- protect citizens and the environment, including the impacts of climate change.
As part of the ISNI process, SIB manages the Delivery Tracking System (DTS) and the Executive’s ISNI Web Portal. This resource keeps suppliers and other stakeholders informed about the Executive’s infrastructure plans and ensures that the private sector is aware of the potential pipeline of activity.
SIB has also developed expertise and techniques that assist departments when they are planning infrastructure.
