Departmental Standards

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what projects sponsored by his Department were subject to Gateway reviews in each of the last four years; what status each project was assigned under such reviews; how much his Department spent on Gateway reviews in each such year; and if he will make a statement. (205869)

[holding answer 15 May 2008]: Gateway reports, including the findings and status, are conducted on a confidential basis for Senior Responsible Owners (SRO). OGC does not, therefore, make this information routinely public.

In principle OGC aims for Gateway reviews to be cost neutral by using and sharing civil service Gateway reviewers. However, where there is a shortfall in reviewers, or if there are specialist skills required, for example with construction projects, suitably accredited external resource may be used. OGC does not keep records of the cost of each individual review but OGC does keep records of total consultancy spend on Gateway reviews.
