The report is in support of the IPA’s ongoing purpose to improve the way infrastructure and major projects are delivered and the government’s commitment to transparency and delivering public services effectively and efficiently.

Projects currently on the GMPP reflect the government’s priorities; making our infrastructure fit for the 21st Century, maintaining the security of the realm and modernizing and digitizing our public services.

The annual report provides a snapshot of how well these projects are progressing as of September 2016.

The government has successfully completed a number of projects during the last year such as DCMS’s Super Connected Cities Programme, which enabled an extra 42,500 small business across the UK to have access to faster broadband.
