In 2010 CEWales published an industry-led report on the performance of the construction sector with recommendation for the Welsh Government, public sector clients and the broader establishment of the Construction Procurement Steering Group by the Minister for Finance, Jayne Hutt. That was 4 years ago. We were in a recession. The marketplace was heading towards lowest price and adversarial relationships. 4 years on and we’re in a different place. Economic prospects are improved albeit public spending levels remain under pressure. So are the recommendation made in 2010 still relevant? Has progress been made? Do we need to focus our energies? Have public sector procurement practices developed?

Over the next 2 months we will be interviewing key people and organisations from across Wales to gather their views and will be presenting an industry report to the Minister to drive further action. This will be your opportunity to input to this process as we run a short presentation and facilitate discussion on ‘the state of the industry.’

We will also take this opportunity to share with you the latest 3 year forward programme of Welsh Local Authorities (2014/18) which sets out their planned capital programmes for the next 3 years. This is a ‘must’ for any organisation seeking greater industry of future workloads. We will also set this against the context of the Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan (WIIP)
