Assurance of Action Plans†
AAP - Assurance of Action Plans - is a new service from OGC Major Projects Directorate, designed to increase the delivery confidence of projects and programmes.
Now halfway through its pilot phase, AAP is proving to be a powerful and effective assurance tool, complimenting OGC Gateway Reviews and Starting Gate.
What is it?
AAP is a post-Gateway Review assurance tool. AAP is a short, sharp process that results in a re-assessment of project Delivery Confidence in the light of the proposed actions drawn up in response to an OGC Gateway Review. We are seeking to apply AAP where an OGC Gateway Review has resulted in a Delivery Confidence of Amber/Red or Red.
The AAP Process is OGC-led and is and carried out in partnership with the parent Department, for the benefit of the SRO.
The overall purpose of AAP is to ensure Delivery Confidence is raised to an appropriate level that will enable delivery of aims to time, cost and quality. We would normally expect this to be Amber/Green.
