The low standing of architects within PFI is a recurring theme of the campaigns. Pringle plans to draw up "a suite of design-friendly models" of procurement that would give design quality a higher priority.
Foxell also stressed the need to improve quality in the public sector: "There's no point expecting schemes to be designed in two weeks and endlessly driving costs down."
Godfrey said he plans to fight the way large, multiple PFI contracts discriminate against small practices.
Raising salaries in the sector is another recurring theme. Saxon said: "We need ways of collecting a proportion of the value we create," while Owen proposes setting up "a client champions panel to develop performance-related fee structures, to help improve architects' pay, conditions and profit margins."
Salisbury said it was time to do something about "the misunderstood profession".
After three weeks of polling, the winner will be announced on 29 or 30 June.
