The Local Government Sector Interest Group (SIG) exists to pre-empt and address the business issues affecting companies that sell their services to local authorities. It does this through a programme of meetings throughout the year, and through engagement with key stakeholders.
Objectives of the Local Government SIG
The SIG will be aiming to:
Complete and promote a series of case studies demonstrating effective collaboration between local government clients and the engineering industry;
Develop a document highlighting how effective collaboration can lead to better value project delivery and higher quality outcomes; and
Promote best procurement practices amongst local authority clients.
The SIG will explore how industry can support clients in achieving best value in project delivery. It will examine the drivers behind local government investment, and monitor progress towards sustainable procurement by local authority clients.
The Local Government SIG is chaired by John Nicholson of WSP.
