Are we nearly there yet?
London mayoral candidate Steve Norris chaired this top-level debate about the future of PFI, organised by Ernst & Young in association with Building. The forum, staged in London in July, was used as the basis for a 12-page report, PFI Grows Up, which is published with this week's issue. The report contains the views of leading contractors and funders on the future of the government's flagship public procurement system, including those of Alfred McAlpine chief executive Ian Grice, Costain PFI director Alistair Handford and Tube Lines finance director Steve Hurrell.
