Groups / Procurement and Pipeline


A strong pipeline of projects is fundamental to the long-term health of our industry.

Working closely with the Infrastructure and Project Authority (IPA) to increase transparency around the project and programme pipeline, the group also focuses on the “how” of procurement in understanding changes in client expectations.

Through the recently published Construction Playbook, Government attitudes and behaviours have shifted towards a stronger focus on value rather than cost, which has also been mirrored by private sector clients. Central Government ideas like Project Speed mean building back better needs to be greener and faster too.

As a result, Consultancies need to change their own approaches to how work is organised and develop new delivery models.

The advocacy group champions a practical improvements to procurement, shaping ACE’s interactions with policymakers, supporting evidence-based thought-leadership, and ensuring our industry is at the forefront of government discussions of an area which cuts across all member activity.

The advocacy group is chaired by Neil Humphrey of Waterman.
