Independent review of construction frameworks
On 9 February 2021, Professor David Mosey of King’s College London was appointed to lead an independent review of public sector frameworks. This move marks the potential of frameworks as a basis for implementing December 2020 Construction Playbook policies that include strategic planning, integrated teams, continuous improvement and the delivery of better, safer, faster and greener project outcomes.
- Components of a ‘gold standard’ against which new proposed frameworks and framework contracts can be measured.
- Standard contract terms that support this standard.
- Training packages to enable adoption of the standard.
 Purpose of playbook
One of these reforms is effective contracting to ensure that contracts are structured to support an exchange of data and collaboration. These actions will ideally improve value and manage risk with clear expectations for continuous improvement.
Across the public and private sectors there are a wide variety of frameworks; however, there is also a lack of clear guidance as to their preferred structure and ‘best practice’ features. As a result, the full potential of frameworks is not always well expressed or well understood, and they are not always successful in delivering their aims. Recommendations for the adoption and use of the most suitable framework structures and features are set out in the Construction Playbook.
