Synopsis - Nothing less than world class delivery 

Delivering major projects is always a challenge and even more so during these unprecedented times. The wellbeing and prosperity of everyone in the UK depends critically on how we rebuild our economy, and transform our infrastructure and public services. That means delivering our major projects successfully and consistently.  Everyone in the public sector and industry has a part to play in making this happen, and the IPA has a key role in enabling the transformation. Nothing short of world class project delivery will do.
