The EU is investigating how to end public procurement headaches for smaller firms, writes Alastair McCapra, LI CEO.
The LI is associated with the Group through its membership of the Construction Industry Council.
LI chief executive Alastair McCapra said: “A number of Registered Practices responded to our request for examples of good and bad procurement practice – with the bad practice very firmly in the majority!
“Our submission, which can be seen in full here, focused on the problems of small-and-medium-sized businesses competing for design, management and consultancy work with public sector clients. We will keep you updated with the outcomes of the Commission of Inquiry later in the year.”
