Assurance is the function of Project Boards and Programme Boards and each Board member retains responsibility for assuring their area of the work. The Board may also choose to appoint specific individuals to carry out some of the assurance function on their behalf. The Assurance role is independent of the Project Manager and, in conjunction with the Programme Director or Project Executive, will decide what needs to be assured for each project. Assurance may include that the Business Case is being adhered to, risks controlled, user needs are met or managed, internal and external communications are working and the strategic fit of project with the overall programme and Oxford Brookes University or Faculty/Directorate strategic plan.
With a commercial customer/supplier relationship these last two functions should be carried out by different people to avoid any conflict of interest.
