The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) arranges and manages more than 200 independent assurance reviews of major government projects each year.
These reviews are mainly for the central government’s most complex and high risk projects in the Government Major Projects Portfolio.
Assurance is an essential part of successful project delivery. The reviews:
- are often required for formal HM Treasury approvals or business case approval points
- provide support and constructive challenge to senior responsible owners
You should use these documents if you’re doing an IPA review. You can also use these documents if you’re doing a non-IPA review, for example, any other government review or a medium risk review.
If you’re interested in becoming one of our independent assurance reviewers, refer to the guidance on how to become an assurance reviewer.
For general guidance on project delivery, refer to the guidance on project and programme management.
For any queries about assurance, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
