Not just ‘major’ projects now
The government has announced that Infrastructure UK and the Major Projects Authority are to merge.  The new organisation, which will be called the Infrastructure & Projects Authority, will bring together government expertise in the financing, delivery & assurance of these projects, which range from large scale infrastructure projects such as Crossrail and the Thames Tideway Tunnel to major transformation programmes such as Universal Credit.  It will come into formal existence on 1 January 2016.
