The Australian Infrastrusture Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP) Board was established on 2 August 2019. Its formal mandate is to provide advice to the Foreign Minister on the strategic alignment and risk of proposed AIFFP projects. It is an advisory board and does not have an executive function. The Board comprises five DFAT staff (SES Band 2/3), two external private sector members and three representatives of Government departments (Treasury, Finance and PM&C). Minister Payne nominated the two external members and was consulted on the Government appointments to the Board prior to its establishment in mid-2019.
