Building Ladders of Opportunity - How can we work together to procure buildings of the best value and highest quality?

22 May 2013

5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Venue:

Steelcase Solutions, Brewery Wharf, Leeds

Description:

  • The UK has some of the lowest level of SME participation in public sector procurement
  • The UK regularly applies disproportionate PQQ thresholds
  • The UK is ineffective in its use of design as a selection criterion
  • UK public procurement rarely focuses on design outcomes

These are some of the findings of the report 'Building Ladders of Opportunity' produced by the RIBA's Procurement Reform Group.
