ICE backs new project initiation framework

A new project initiation route map was launched at ICE last month, by the Infrastructure and Projects Authority.

The route map was first published in 2014 in response to findings from the government’s Infrastructure Cost Review. This indicated that delivery failures can often be traced back to a project’s initial set up. The route map provides a framework to help project leaders identify and mitigate problems often encountered in the early stages of a project.

ICE director general Nick Baveystock urged major clients to use the document. “This route map update, which includes new modules on risk and asset management, will further strengthen clients’ capabilities. The ICE is delighted to have supported the Infrastructure Client Group which developed it in collaboration with the government. I encourage use of the framework and welcome feedback on it, so we can continue to improve.”
