Chartered builders and chartered construction managers receive official recognition in Northern Ireland public procurement


In June 2021, it was announced that the Permanent Secretary of the Department of Finance in Northern Ireland has written to the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) confirming that MCIOB will be recognised in public procurement going forward.

The move comes after consultation with members in the region who had expressed concern around the lack of recognition for CIOB in public procurement processes compared to other professional bodies.

Eddie Tuttle, Director of Policy, Public Affairs and Research at CIOB, said, "This is a significant moment for CIOB and its members in Northern Ireland, and we are delighted to see our the productive relationship we have developed with CPD and the Department of Finance bear fruit.

"Given the decentralised nature of procurement in Northern Ireland, recognition by central government is only the first part of the process. We will continue to work with individual procurement bodies in Northern Ireland to ensure CIOB is embedded in construction procurement across the country.”

Information on CIOB membership can be found here.
