The British Standards Institution (BSI) has introduced a new procurement standard for the construction market (BSI). BS 8534:2011 - Construction procurement policies, strategies and procedures. Code of practice, 2011 - gives recommendations and guidance on the development of policies, strategies and procedures for the procurement of construction in the built environment.
It complements the existing standard, BS ISO 10845 – Construction procurement, which provides the detail. The new standard takes a top level approach to assist procurers both within the private and public sectors. It will also assist supply chain teams which procure sub-contracted labour.
The new standard responds to industry demand for consistency in the way construction work is procured and in the engagement of the supply chain in the project decision making process.
