IDEAS AND POLICY ADVICE
THE GERRARD REPORT
REPORT FROM THE INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM'S
Infrastructure Boards work much like boards in any other sector. However, the challenges facing the infrastructure sector and its key characteristics are sufficiently different to other sectors of the economy as to justify a specific set of high-level governance principles and practices.
This report suggests that even a relatively light-touch adoption of some common principles and practices of governance across the sector could yield benefits
The report provides a set of recommendations for boards across the infrastructure sector, regardless of whether their organisations are public or private sector, or whether they manage assets in operation, construction, early-stage development, or a combination of these.
The Infrastructure Forum is part of the European Policy Forum, which has been improving the quality of policy ideas for the UK and the EU since 1992.
The Forum is highly regarded for its expertise in the financial, energy, transport, telecoms and other regulated sectors.
