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.
It suggests that the trusted helper delivery model approach is where: ‘The client is focused on its core business and requires competent suppliers (often in a safety critical environment) that may know the client’s operating procedures or technical challenges better than the client. There is close proximity between client and market, and workloads may fluctuate.’ ie “ I need help, come and perform for me without me having to tell you how that needs to be done.”
