Recommendation 20 promotes the use of the Common Assessment Standard to ‘reduce procurement costs by consistent and proportionate assessment of [suppliers’] economic and financial standing’. The Common Assessment Standard is being rolled out across the industry with a growing list of organisations using it for their PQ requirements, and members of the supply chain can obtain certification from any one of three Recognised Assessment Bodies ‐ Achilles, CHAS or Constructionline.
Webinar: Common Assessment Standard
On 10 February, FIS will be hosting a webinar looking at the benefits and adoption of the Common Assessment Standard.
The construction supply chain has voiced concerns about proliferation of tender management systems and the inefficiency created by producing information for the same purpose in different forms and paying multiple organisations to manage this information. CAS was introduced in 2019 to address these concerns and it is now starting to gain traction.
Attendees will get an update on how the Standard is being adopted by main contractors, insights into how you can start to benefit from the efficiencies that the CAS provides.
