IUK is a unit within the Treasury's Enterprise and Growth Directorate led by its Chief Executive, Geoffrey Spence.

To deliver IUK’s core remit, we are working at a strategic level across Whitehall and the private sector to develop a new cross cutting approach to the planning, prioritisation and enabling of investment in infrastructure.
IUK also supports the delivery of major infrastructure projects where there is capital investment from the public sector. For example we are supporting the delivery of Crossrail, Broadband UK, Smart Meters and a range of other projects and programmes. In working with Departments or public sector organisations we have established protocols that set out the relationship with the client under a memorandum of understanding. This is independent of IUK’s work in providing central government departments with assurance about the value for money of a project, and IUK ensures that these interfaces are managed carefully to ensure any risk of perceived conflict.
