To ask Her Majesty's Government on which projects where the Delivery Confidence Assessment is shown as amber, amber/red or red in the Infrastructure and Project Authority (IPA) Annual Reports the IPA provides expert staff to assist; and whether such staff are required to produce progress reports on the projects.
The Infrastructure and Project Authority (IPA) does not routinely deploy staff to assist projects on the Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP). On occasion, in light of its engagement and independent assurance, the IPA may offer specific assistance or expertise to the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO – usually a government department or public agency) of any project. Equally, an SRO may make a specific request of IPA for assistance or expertise. Where the IPA and the SRO agree a deployment is in the interests of successful delivery, the nature of reporting arrangements will be agreed.
