About us

The National Association of Construction Frameworks (NACF) is playing a unique role in leading the ongoing adoption of best practice in local government

Building on our past successes, the NACF is working together with the Local Government Association (LGA) to help shape the future of local government construction. Between us, we deliver over £1.5bn of construction work a year. We share key objectives to build quality assets to cost and time whilst ensuring we deliver social value through support to the local economy, employment and skills.

Our partnerships with the private sector give us a unique insight into the construction market and enable us to better inform local and central government through our market intelligence and understanding of the supply chain. Our combined data demonstrates we outperform traditional construction procurement.
