Introduction to the construction procurement policy framework

The construction procurement policy framework sets out the key aspects of NI public procurement policy that are of particular significance to construction works and services.

Construction procurement policy framework document

This document is published as a Procurement Guidance Note (PGN): 

The framework has two parts:

  • Part A outlines the key policy themes that are fundamental to construction procurement
  • Part B provides guidance and includes summary information with helpful references to other PGNs that are relevant to construction procurement

The framework document contains detailed information about a range of aspects of construction procurement policy.  Only the key outputs as agreed by CPD, the Centres of Procurement Expertise and the Construction Industry Forum for Northern Ireland have been included.

Further information and the rationale for developing a particular policy are not restated where other guidance documents exist which explain that policy. Instead, the framework signposts readers to further details elsewhere.
