The Construction Playbook, Government Guidance on sourcing and contracting public works projects and programmes Version 1, produced by the Cabinet Office and published in December 2020, is focused on getting projects and programmes right from the start. Its principles and policies are intended to transform how public works projects and programmes are assessed, procured and managed. It is a ‘compact’ between government and industry, setting out how they will work together in future.
‘Publishing commercial pipelines enables suppliers to understand the likely future demands across government. By sharing early insights on planned activities, we can expect to achieve wider participation and greater diversity in our supply chains including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises (VCSEs), and support capability-building for the longer term.
‘Published commercial pipelines should look ahead three to five years to be truly effective.’
