Scottish procurement model 'could work in England'
A new report has called for the Scottish procurement model to be adopted in England, noting that private finance can be used to deliver public infrastructure in a way that benefits both sectors.
The Infrastructure Forum's Social Infrastructure working group suggested that a single procurement agency in England, as already exists in Scotland, could help facilitate this process and ensure it was transparent as possible.
The Infrastructure Forum Advisory Council chairman Richard Threlfall claimed that improving procurement and infrastructure developments is crucial to the UK's economic growth, reports H&V News.
"We need a holistic approach to the economic development of this country covering housing, schools, hospitals, leisure facilities, as well as all the supporting energy, utility, transport and digital infrastructure," he added.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development recently suggested that flexible working will be crucial to the UK's growth over the coming years as the global economy remains unstable.
