Effectiveness of Frameworks

Included in the July 2012 report by the Government Construction Strategy Procurement / Lean Client Task Group is a report on the "Effectiveness of Frameworks". This key report was intended to demonstrate how public frameworks should support the recommended outcomes of the Government Construction Strategy. The NACF has used this report to benchmark the regional frameworks against the recommendations and to ensure that we are stretching ourselves to meet the broadest public requirements for value, and social benefits.
