Getting value from project assurance

Sixways Stadium, Warriors Way, Worcester WR3 8ZE

How do you get the most value from assurance activities in and around projects? A framework for assuring projects. 

How do you avoid gaps and duplications in assurance, and ensure that a consistent approach is applied to all projects within an organisation?

When does a 'review' become an 'audit'? Roy will refer to various aspects of the Assurance SIG's work to show how organisations can use simple tools, measures and guidance to ensure that projects are appropriately assured and that the right assurance is provided to the right people at the right time.


Until November 2017, Roy Millard was responsible for the planning and delivery of all internal audits of project and programme management within Transport for London (FfL). Joining TfL Internal Audit in September 2002, he has over 34 years of experience of engineering projects in PPP, PFI, partnering, joint venture, consortia and conventional contracting environments, as project engineer, risk manager, project manager and internal audit manager. 

In particular, he had lead roles within Racal on major defence projects such Bowman and IRIS, and as a senior manager within Thales on the Connect project for London Underground.

Roy now works as an independent consultant (trading as P3 Risk and Assurance) providing advice and support on matters of governance, risk and assurance in project organisations. 

Roy has an Honours degree and a post-graduate Diploma in Management Studies; is a Fellow of the APM and a full member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology; was until recently an APM Trustee; and is the founder and Chairman of the Assurance Specific Interest Group.


This event is suitable for professionals with an intermediate level of experience.
