The Capital Programme in this year’s Budget totals spending of £182,382,000.
The majority of the Capital Programme for 2021/22 will be undertaken by the Department of Infrastructure in line with their responsibility to manage and maintain the bulk of Government’s infrastructure and its own share of the public sector housing stock.
This year will see the addition of additional scrutiny of Capital Project delivery with an enhanced overview from the Strategic Asset and Capital Investment Committee and the addition of a major projects unit within the Cabinet Office.
The Department of Health and Social Care also draws significantly from the budget, and 2021/22 includes a new resident’s home at Summerhill and investment to replace the Laboratory Information Management system.
Other larger schemes include the Fibre Optic network improvement, a project to replace the airport fire training rig, an increase to the Climate Change adaptation fund to support planned, prioritised and rapid responses to flooding and other climate change pressures, an increase to the capital projects contingency to reflect the unpredictability experienced recently and the replacement of a range of emergency services vehicles and equipment.
