### Procurement of the construction product in united kingdom

##### Reference no: EM1310215

"Procurement of the construction product as in the United Kingdom developed from the 16th & 17th centuries, where clients organized craftsman & laborers through a "master craftsman", to the "master builder" (Cubit et al circa 1850) in the early nineteenth century. This socio/political & cultural development has had significant effect on the present United Kingdom procurement systems. However for all the signification of procurement systems the UNITED KINGDOM remains as the least efficient (half as good as the best) in Europe. Procurement systems have changed enormously, due to changes in concept on risk apportionment, economic costs & in the UNITED KINGDOM due to Government led reports & initiatives e.g. Egan report & PFI initiative. However surprisingly; efficiency has not improved.

Perhaps the UNITED KINGDOM should examine the procurement systems of other counties to see if they have anything to tell us!"
