Procurement

The Strategic Forum for Construction has supported the work of the Cabinet Office to develop pilots for three new models of procurement – cost-led procurement (www.gov.uk/government/publications/cost-led-procurement) , two-stage open book (www.gov.uk/government/publications/two-stage-open-book)  and integrated project insurance (www.gov.uk/government/publications/integrated-project-insurance). These approaches are now being tested on current public sector construction projects. The Forum will continue to work with Cabinet Office and others to support the wider implementation of these models, subject to the successful completion of pilots.

The Forum also supports work carried out by Infrastructure UK in HM Treasury to develop a routemap for the initiation and procurement of major infrastructure projects and programmes (www.gov.uk/government/publications/improving-infrastructure-delivery-project-initiation-routemap).
