CECA Frameworks Report – Directions In Policy For The UK’s Infrastructure Sector 2018

Frameworks are a good way of organising and delivering civil engineering projects. Yet, while some work well – providing the opportunity for civil engineering contractors to deliver work efficiently – at times they do not work effectively at all. Our research identified a series of key principles for effective frameworks to guide those procuring and managing them to ensure excellent delivery on the ground. In order to start the drive forward towards best practice, we worked with our members and others in industry to develop a series of recommendations for our infrastructure clients.

But failure could see the country failing to perform at the level of our global competitors. Our aim in this document is to identify the key policies that will help deliver the best possible outcome in this ‘Infrastructure Decade’ to come.
