The RAPID gated process

The gated process ensures that companies complete the activities expected in order to receive the additional funding. The process allows for cross-comparison of the solutions at regular intervals to identify the best opportunities for optimum results.

The purpose of the gated process is to ensure at each gate that:​

  • companies are progressing strategic water resource solutions that have been allocated funding at PR19;​
  • costs incurred in doing so are efficient; and​
  • solutions merit continued investigation and development during the period 2020 to 2025.
