An Office of Government Commerce Gateway™ Review is conducted on a confidential basis for the SRO (Senior Responsible Owner) and ownership of the report including its associated outcome rests with the SRO. This approach promotes an open and honest exchange between the programme/project and review teams delivering maximum added value. The OGC receives copies of review reports in order to identify and disseminate generic lessons learned.
