The GMPP is a continually evolving portfolio of the government’s most com-plex and high-risk projects. Direct comparisons of the GMPP across years should therefore be treated with caution. Projects join and leave the GMPP throughout the year and it is therefore likely that a simple comparison across two points in time will refer to different sets of projects.
At the end of June 2016 (i.e. the end of the Quarter 1 reporting period for 2016-17), 411.7 FTE officials in the Home Office were working on GMPP projects.
