 Purpose of the Capital Steering Group

Working methods

  • Papers are issued a week in advance of the meeting. The relevant divisional head or service area head may be invited to present the business case to CSG;
  • Project sponsors are asked to inform PRAS of cases which are being developed, to ensure papers are issued in advance of the meeting.

The template for project business cases can be accessed here: CSG Capital Project Business Case (42kb), while Annex A is available at the following link: CSG Annex A Capital Project Business Case Financial Sustainability 16-17 (25kb). You are encouraged to contact the CSG Secretary at the earliest opportunity for assistance with completing this template. Please be aware that if any of the information requirements are not met, CSG may send the business case back for further work thereby delaying the commencement of the project.
