DCA text: HNIP has undertaken detailed project planning to ensure teams are fully resourced and key risks are identified. Mitigating actions have been developed and implemented to ensure that the project is de-risked sufficiently for the successful launch of the main scheme. Specialist advice has been sought for technical project areas. Lessons learned and process evaluation from the Pilot Scheme have fed into Main Scheme design in order to increase delivery confidence.
