The Minister for the Cabinet Office announced the creation of the Major Projects Authority in February 2011, in order to significantly improve the success rate of major projects across central government.

The Major Projects Review Group (MPRG) acts as part of the assurance process and was initially established in January 2007 to improve the performance of major projects. The MPRG is a pool of experts, from which panels are put together to scrutinise the largest and most complex major Government projects.

The Government will publish an annual report on the progress of the major projects portfolio each year.
