Working together builds better results
The London Construction Programme (LCP) was established in 2012, encouraged and supported by London Councils, to develop a Pan-London strategy to improve construction procurement.
The LCP is a virtual partnership of various buying organisations offering procurement solutions to deliver construction projects more efficiently and effectively.
The various buying organisations who comprise the LCP board are currently: Haringey Council, Crown Commercial Service (CCS) (formerly Government Procurement Service (GPS)), LHC, Supply Chain Management Group (SCMG), Improvement and Efficiency South East, (IESE).
In London, the LCP aims to explore and deliver any benefits that might be realised through collaborative working between public sector clients in the 33 boroughs across London and other public sector organisations within London.
LCP’s strategic aim is for London’s public sector commissioning authorities and buying organisations to work collectively to achieve higher benchmarking, cut the cost and risk of localised procurement, align and harmonise the supply market offer to public sector commissioners, whilst achieving better value for money outcomes from construction projects collaboration.
It does this by maximising outcomes and benefits by avoiding duplication of effort, and leveraging the combined buying power of London’s public sector and associated buying organisations. It provides a platform for collaborative procured framework agreements and contracts which help deliver construction projects to client organisations and provide a centralised market to suppliers.
The following Framework is available for use under the LCP:
