Public sector efficiency guide published

A set of guidelines has been created to squeeze more efficiency from public sector construction projects.

The Institution of Civil Engineers Client Best Practice Guide was launched by the Olympic Delivery Authority transport head of programme management Sue Kershaw last night.

It explains how to ensure better value for money for the taxpayer during the planning, development and implementation stages of projects as well as during operation and final decommissioning.

Ms Kershaw said: “Poor procurement practices can lead to wasted investment. Clients need to know if they are using best practice, how can this be assessed and how it leads to project success.

“This guide is only the beginning of a wider initiative to disseminate best practice in construction; it will be developed further to meet the needs of the industry.”
