Collaborative Working for Major Works

 

In London, the LCP aims to explore and deliver any benefits that might be realised through collaborative working between LCP members  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 benchmarks using their respective strengths and combined resources.

 

The LCP partnership goal is to avoid duplication and inefficiency in construction procurement and maximise value for money from construction projects by aligning and harmonising the supply market offer available to public sector commissioners in London.

 

LCP aims to cut the cost and risk of localised procurement and achieve better value for money outcomes from construction projects through collaboration.

 

It does this by maximising outcomes and benefits, and avoiding duplication of effort leveraging the combined buying power of London’s public sector and associated buying organisations, and making available collaboratively procured framework agreements and contracts, to help deliver construction projects more efficiently and effectively to client organisations and provide a centralised market to suppliers.

 

By re-engineering construction procurement in London on a collaborative footing, LCP partners are already saving commissioning organisations significant man-hours, duplication of effort and fees; plus increasing compliance and reducing risk management costs.
