An accounting officer assessment should always be produced for projects or programmes which form part of the Government's Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP).

This follows guidance from HM Treasury, which ensures the actions of the public organisations meet the four accounting officer standards for use of public resources:

  1. regularity
  2. propriety
  3. value for money
  4. feasibility
