Procurement Committee

Headline purpose

Chaired by RSUA Director Ciarán Fox, the Committee’s focus has been to help formulate RSUA’s input to the CIFNI review of the processes by which architects are appointed for public sector projects. The review is underway and early discussions have centred around mechanisms to ensure sustainable fee levels, the use of design and build contracts and steps that would widen the opportunity to win public projects.
