IfG Responds to the Major Projects Authority Annual Report

Responding to the publication of the Major Projects Authority Annual Report 2014, Researcher Gavin Freeguard said:

"We welcome the publication of RAG ratings of government major projects for a second year. With around £500bn of public money expected to be spent on these projects, it’s vital that government continues to publish such realistic assessments so we can analyse what’s happening in more detail. 

“The proportion of projects receiving a positive green or amber/green has gone down this year, and those receiving a red or amber/red rating has gone up. However, the improvement in many of the projects that were rated red or amber-red last year is encouraging. 

“One disappointing note is that DWP’s ‘resetting’ of the rating for Universal Credit, means there is no information updating its amber/red rating of 2013.”
