Implementing the UK’s exit from the European Union: Infrastructure and Projects Authority
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.
Notes for Editors
- Press notices and reports are available from the date of publication on the NAO website. Hard copies can be obtained by using the relevant links on our website.
- The National Audit Office scrutinises public spending for Parliament and is independent of government. The Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG), Sir Amyas Morse KCB, is an Officer of the House of Commons and leads the NAO, which employs some 785 people. The C&AG certifies the accounts of all government departments and many other public sector bodies. He has statutory authority to examine and report to Parliament on whether departments and the bodies they fund have used their resources efficiently, effectively, and with economy. Our studies evaluate the value for money of public spending, nationally and locally. Our recommendations and reports on good practice help government improve public services. Our work led to audited savings of £734 million in 2016.
