The government’s infrastructure contracts make provision for the use of Project Bank Accounts (PBAs), and departments have committed to use PBAs on all infrastructure projects unless there are compelling reasons not to do so. Due to the range of infrastructure projects undertaken by government, the approaches taken will vary.

Ten infrastructure contracts overseen by the Environment Agency in the last year have been let with the stipulation that a PBA must be used.
