We all know that the need for investment in the health sector is virtually limitless, but the governing body have no choice but to take a very conservative spending approach. Thankfully, with the existing procurement program ProCure21+ (Glenigan project id 09183537) now being a highly-integrated framework that consistently delivers innovation and value excellence, this has helped to make considerable savings.
In 2001, before ProCure21 was introduced, just 28% of public sector construction projects were delivered on time, and only 29% were on budget. 3% of the NHS capital budget was spent on litigation.
But by 2004 it was delivering high cost-certainty, with consistently high client satisfaction on product and service, and a total elimination of litigation.
Also, fifteen years since its introduction, ProCure21+ is not standing still and The Department of Health has announced that they will replace this program, expiring in October 2016, with a new ProCure22 initiative (Glenigan project id 14390700).
The guidelines laid down in the programs are aimed at achieving optimum collaboration of public health with the selected major construction companies operating in the context of the programme as a private partner. In the previous programmes six companies completed the Principal Supply Chain Partners, which meant that once a partner was selected the client would have access to the products and services of all its suppliers. Which means smooth cooperation, faster project execution and favourable terms are promised thanks to proven procurement chains.
Building Information Modelling has been mandated by Government for use on all public sector construction projects by 2016, and the ProCure21+ framework is actively embracing the challenge.
ProCure22 is currently under a ‘value for money’ review, due to be concluded end of September and following the conclusion of the review the tender process is to commence which will be completed by early summer of 2016. The new framework will be launched in October 2016.
Among the previously completed projects include a new emergency department at London’s Lewisham Hospital, apartment building for staff of the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate (Kent) and a training centre in South Devon.
