The Construction Products Association has now launched its Procurement Guidance Tool, developed to assist procurers implementing the government’s balanced scorecard approach in construction. The Tool signposts procurers to the different types of evidence that construction product manufacturers can provide in response to procurement questions about a broad range of topics in the balanced scorecard.

This evidence comprises the mature landscape of International and European standards, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS’s), certification schemes and industry initiatives by which the product industry reports its performance. The aim of the Tool is to better align the likely questions that will emerge from procurers as a result of the government rolling out a balanced scorecard approach to all construction, infrastructure, and capital investment projects over £10million. Each new project will need to develop its own balanced scorecard.
