Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP)


The Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP) contains data on central government projects which are considered to have high degrees of complexity, impact or risk.

Starting in 2013 the Government has provided an annual progress report on GMPP projects and the basic data for each project is published in csv format.

All the available annual data has been collated and republished here as a searchable database.

Data loading notes:

Data was last loaded on 6 November 2018. There 996 reports in total with data from 2013-2018. The base data file is available from the LPDA Meetup organisers.
All data is from IPA/MPA csv files except 2013 data which is from departmental websites or National Archives (for ONS). NS&I data for 2013 is no longer available.
Category assignments are from an FOI request to the Cabinet Office.
Assignment of unique project names is reasonably complete. There are now 381 projects but there might be further amalgamation in the future.
All project reports now have category assignments although those for 2013 are provisional as these were not provided under the FOI request. Note that a few projects have categories which vary from year to year.
GDS Register codes - full organisation name is now provided.
Links to Google search on project name provide more information about the project in some cases.
