The Major Projects Authority has a clear, enforceable mandate from the Prime Minister for the oversight and direction of major projects funded and delivered by central government. It has been established to ensure firmer control of the Government's major projects both at the individual and the portfolio level.

The requirements of that mandate are available at: http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/sites/default/files/resources/mpa_mandate_0.pdf.
