How will the IPA support Brexit?
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). 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.
