Federation has positive engagement with NIFHA

This week saw the start of a more regular programme of engagement between the Construction Employers Federation and the Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations (NIFHA).

The first of a now quarterly series of meetings saw a number of items discussed including, but not limited to:

  • NIFHA’s work on a standard suite of Z Clauses for housing associations – on which we will be consulted at the end of February;
  • The development of a Procurement Forum (replacing the old Procurement Board) between the construction industry, the housing associations and central government;
  • How the new social clause model, buysocialNI, will be taken forward housing associations and;
  • The future use of eTendersNI by housing associations
