Posted by James Driver on 27th Nov 2017

The National Audit Office has today published a briefing describing how the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (the Authority) is supporting government departments as they prepare for implementing EU Exit.

The briefing describes:

  • The likely impact of EU exit on Government’s Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP), including the existing portfolio and whether EU Exit is likely to result in new projects and programmes.
  • How the Authority has adapted its activities to support government departments with their early preparations for EU Exit projects, and to help recruit project delivery professionals.
  • How the Authority’s activities have increased in part due to EU Exit activities and the impact on the Authority’s resource requirements.

The Infrastructure and Projects Authority is a governmental body in the United Kingdom, formed in 2016 by the merger of Infrastructure UK (IUK) and the Major Projects Authority (MPA).[1] Tony Meggs is the chief executive.

IUK was established in 2010 to support major infrastructure projects involving public sector capital; and the MPA was established in 2011 with a mandate to oversee and assure the largest government projects.
