The Government will establish a Government Business Enterprise (GBE) under the Corporations Act 2001, to develop the Moorebank site as an Intermodal Terminal. The Government will optimise private sector funding in the construction and operation of the facility, including through the use of private terminal operators. The Government will consider privatisation of the GBE, subject to market conditions. The amount of the Commonwealth's equity injection is commercial‑in‑confidence given that negotiations are to be undertaken to determine potential private sector participation.

Over five years to 2016‑17, funding of $26.4 million will be provided to the Department of Finance and Deregulation to allow the Moorebank Project Office to progress the project and oversight the GBE, and funding of $2.1 million will be provided to the Department of Infrastructure and Transport to assist in the oversight of the GBE.

The Government will provide $10.3 million over five years to establish a whole‑of‑government information management system for parliamentary workflow.

This measure is intended to better manage future investment by Commonwealth agencies by avoiding duplication and improving parliamentary workflow between agencies and ministerial offices.

The system will be developed and hosted by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations based on its current Parliamentary Document Management System. This funding will be fully recovered from participating agencies. Ongoing operational costs will be met by participating agencies under fee‑for‑service arrangements. The Department of Finance and Deregulation will manage the governance arrangements for the implementation of the new system.
