Consultation on social clauses
Posted by APM on 8th Feb 2013
The Social clauses within the Construction Industry Forum Northern Ireland Proposals for Promoting Equality and Sustainable Development, set requirements for employment opportunities, skills and training and have been included in construction works contracts since December 2008.
The NI Assemblys Programme for Government now requires the inclusion of social considerations in all public procurement contracts and as a consequence proposal must now be developed for construction services contracts.
Following discussions at the meeting between the Centre of Procurement Excellence and the Construction Industry Group of Northern Ireland Professional College on the 7th November CPD agreed to produce a paper outlining proposals for the social clauses in construction services contracts. This paper can be downloaded here.
APMwould welcome comments on the proposals in order to relay the sentiments ofour members to CPD. If you would like to comment on the document, please forward your response, no later than 9am on Monday 25th February email@example.com
