Government contracts make provision for the use of Project Bank Accounts (PBAs) and departments have committed to use PBAs on their construction projects unless there are compelling reasons not to. The greatest use of PBAs is in DfT within Highways England and through Defra in the Environment Agency.

It is for individual departments to monitor the PBA as appropriate to their contracts
