27 Jan What is Project Assurance ?
Project Assurance is a term used to describe an impartial assessment of a project (or programme). The outcome of the assessment is to make a set of recommendations that are critical to the successful delivery of the project.
The actual term Project Assurance was first used in PRojects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE). Assurance is about checking that the project remains viable in terms of costs and benefits (business assurance), checking that the users’ requirements are being met (user assurance), and that the project is delivering a suitable solution (specialist or technical assurance).
PRINCE2 separates the Project Assurance function from the Project Support function. The Project Board as defined in PRINCE2 have responsibility and accountability for Project Assurance. Depending on the size, scope, risk and profile of the project, and their own knowledge, skills and time available, they may choose to delegate responsibility for Project Assurance to others within the organisation or engage external specialist.
