This report provides recommendations on how government, clients and the industry can maximise the impact of the sector deal by a change in approach to procurement. Construction regularly comes under a critical spotlight and it is unequivocal that productivity increases in the sector have fallen short of most other sectors in the UK economy.
Over the past five years the Government has developed Construction 2025: Industrial Strategy3, an updated Government Construction Strategy 2016-20204, Building our Industrial Strategy5 and has now published the Industrial Strategy Construction Sector Deal. The Industrial Strategy sets out the government’s ambition to embed a more strategic approach to procurement. In the same period the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) has been created and the Infrastructure and Projects Authority has been formed from the merger of Infrastructure UK (IUK) and the Major Projects Authority (MPA), which are all important steps towards improvement.
