An environmental impact statement (EIS) for a coordinated project must include an economic impact assessment (EIA), as stipulated in the project's terms of reference required under the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971.

The EIA identifies the key economic impacts of the project, both positive and negative, and provides information to allow the Coordinator-General to weigh up all of the social, economic and environmental impacts of the project assessed in the EIS.

The Coordinator-General has developed an Economic impact assessment guideline for coordinated projects to inform proponents, key stakeholders and the community about the information required for the Coordinator-General to evaluate the economic impacts of the project.
