The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) annual report 2016 to 2017 supports the government’s commitment to transparency, to improving the delivery of infrastructure and major projects and to delivering public services effectively and efficiently.
It shows the progress made on those projects included in the Government Major Project Portfolio (GMPP).
None of the government’s major technology or IT-dependent programmes have received the highest “red” warning status in the latest review of the biggest Whitehall projects.
However, eight such programmes have received the next highest “amber/red” rating, which means “successful delivery is in doubt”.
The annual report from the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) shows that 39 IT projects worth £18.6bn are being monitored as part of the government’s major project portfolio – although many of the 40 projects worth £71.1bn classified as “transformation and service delivery” are heavily dependent on IT and digital implementation.
