The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) will publish the next iteration of its annual National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline in 2021, as stated in the NIS, and this will list future planned investments and procurements across infrastructure and construction.

The Pipeline is a tool provided by the government to support all companies across the UK to make critical business decisions and provide them with the certainty needed to invest in innovation and skills. The IPA is not the custodian of the data included within the Pipeline as this is owned by individual contracting authorities spanning both public and private sector. The procurements included within the Pipeline are only those with a high confidence of delivery and by including them within the Pipeline contracting authorities are providing a commitment to seek to deliver them as planned.
