Keeping government’s major projects on track: keynote speech by Matthew Vickerstaff

Thursday 14 March 2019, 18:00 - 19:00

The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome Matthew Vickerstaff, Interim Chief Executive of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) and Head of the Government Project Delivery Function, to deliver a keynote speech.

The IPA is the government’s centre of expertise for infrastructure and major projects. The IPA supports the delivery of all types of major projects ranging from railways, schools, hospitals and housing, to defence, IT and major transformation programmes. This speech was an opportunity to reflect on the IPA’s work to improve government’s ability to deliver its priorities, and the future of government project delivery after Brexit.

This event was chaired by Dr Gemma Tetlow, IfG Chief Economist. There was an opportunity for audience questions.
