Managing cost risk & uncertainty In infrastructure projects

Infrastructure UK, a unit within the UK Treasury that works on long-term infrastructure priorities, has undertaken a review of the cost of infrastructure projects in the UK and how this cost can be reduced.

One workstream within this has focused on the best risk and contingency management in UK infrastructure projects; the research investigated how to share and improve this leading practice. It is felt that this offers major financial benefits for the next generation of multi-£billion infrastructure projects.

This report is aimed at those who can help make this happen; directors, senior managers and experienced risk managers.
