The latest quarterly iteration of the Northern Ireland Executive's Infrastructure Investment Pipeline has been published this week.
Recent years have seen industry’s engagement with government on matters of public procurement improve significantly...
With a public sector capital budget in Northern Ireland of over £1 billion a year, that engagement has been geared towards making procurement processes easier and more straightforward for local companies.
On matters such as the centralisation of the procurement and delivery of key infrastructure projects, social clauses and Project Bank Accounts it is though critical that industry continues to have its voice heard.
Over two and a half years since the collapse of the Northern Ireland Executive, local construction firms have made it very clear that a market recession is likely, if not already happening. This is the key headline from the latest State of Trade Survey, for the first half of 2019, conducted by the Construction Employers Federation.
