A project assessment review (PAR) is a flexible assurance review available to a programme or project when specific assurance needs arise.

Project assessment review

The PAR process is managed in Northern Ireland by Construction and Procurement Delivery (CPD). A terms of reference is necessary to direct the review. 

A PAR is typically used when:


  • a programme or project is in difficulty and further investigation and analysis is required.

Further information on PARs is available from the departmental assurance co-ordinator in the Centre of Expertise for Programme and Project Management. Detailed guidance has been published for use by senior responsible owners (SROs), programme and project support staff and by review teams.
