To ask Her Majesty's Government what action is taken within departments in relation to projects which are rated in the Annual Reports of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority as amber, amber/red, or red in the Delivery Confidence Assessment; and whether they seek explanations and plans before returning projects to the green category.
Departmental action in response to ratings of amber, amber/red or red is, in the first instance, a matter for the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO – usually a government department or public agency) of the project. The nature of the action will be specific to the individual project, its objectives and its environment.
The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) will, through its engagement, data, reporting and assurance, monitor departmental action and progress against plans. In this way it seeks to ensure evidence is provided for any change in Delivery Confidence Assessment.
