TIF RESPONSE TO THE PROCUREMENT GREEN PAPER 

PROCUREMENT WORKING GROUP

TIF's Procurement Working Group submitted it's response to government's Procurement Green Paper in March 2021. There are a number of changes proposed within the Green Paper that are welcome in terms of increasing transparency, and the creation of some common principles, which will undoubtedly help to simplify public procurement.

 

The group's main concern however, is that the Green Paper does not effectively cover major infrastructure projects. It instead brackets these together with, and focuses on, transactional procurements of varying sizes. As major infrastructure projects feature large expenditure of public money and attract public scrutiny, the failure to have them in clear focus throughout the green paper is a missed opportunity which should be corrected in further work.
