The Standard is published alongside the Project Delivery Capability Framework, which sets out the career paths, competencies and development opportunities for the government project delivery profession.
Further guidance published as part of the Standard is The Role of the Senior Responsible Owner which sets out requirements and expectations for Senior Responsible Owners (SROs) of major government projects.
