Acting from within HM Treasury, the IPA (Infrastructure Project Authority) provides guidance on how to initiate and deliver large infrastructure projects. It issued a route map for this in 2016, split into a number of modules addressing such things as governance, procurement, risk management and asset management. This suite of modules has recently been revised, and a new one prepared to address the area of Systems Integration.
Separately, an approach has recently been developed that provides a way of understanding the impact of a projected infrastructure project on a nation’s progress towards achieving the UN SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). This uses an Integrated Value Approach both to understand and unite the separate legs of the three-legged sustainability stool, ie economic, environmental and social. The resultant technique, known as MISI (Measuring Infrastructure SDG global goals Impact), has now been trialled on a small number of infrastructure projects. The presentation will briefly summarise MISI and its trial application on Thames Tideway.
