To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to implement the recommendations in the National Audit Office’s report Projects leaving the Government Major Projects Portfolio, published on 19 October, that business cases should be “updated to reflect any changes to the scope of the project” and that the Infrastructure and Projects Authority and Treasury “need to work together to realise their ambitions for benefits realisation, cost discipline and selecting the right projects for future funding”.

The Government welcomes this report from the NAO and its recognition of the significant advances the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) has made in its oversight of projects and in using benefits data to drive improved performance.

The IPA will continue to develop its work with departments, to address the NAO’s findings and recommendations to strengthen adherence to business case processes.
