In the UK, the government’s latest economic forecast includes over 500 projects and programmes worth over £400bn. However, funding from all sources is under pressure, particularly due to lower oil and gas investment, and concerns over the performance of the Asian markets. Business cases for new schemes are under ever increasing scrutiny to deliver better and safer returns.  

Understanding the issues that affect your organisation

All sectors are competing for infrastructure investment. Currently, energy and transport account for the majority (91 per cent). Greater demands for addressing climate change, improving productivity and addressing an ageing population have prompted the government to take a fresh look.

The government have established a National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) to evaluate and propose the nation’s long term infrastructure needs and have created the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA). The IPA provides expertise in infrastructure and the financing, delivery and assurance of major projects.
