Group to help in training programme for £4bn national health construction procurement framework
Cyril Sweett has been appointed by the Department of Health to assist in training for the implementation of the £4bn health construction procurement framework ProCure21.
The group will provide training packages to improve knowledge and performance within the NHS and its appointed advisers working on ProCure21 schemes.
Assistance will be given on the practical application of the NEC contract, with the aim of improving communication between involved parties and delivering projects on time.
Dean Webster, chief executive of Cyril Sweett, said: “Cyril Sweett has been acting as a trusted cost adviser since the national roll-out of ProCure21 and has also worked with many of the principal supply chain partners [PSCPs] appointed to the framework.”
The training workshops will be delivered over the next 10 months to NHS professionals and construction industry professionals.
Webster added: “It is widely recognised that successful ProCure21 projects require a constructive partnership between the PSCP throughout the lifetime of the programme.
“Collaborative working, proactive project management and commercial management within a target cost envelope will be fundamental aspects of the training.”
