Fair and Transparent: Implementing the CAMF for Construction Procurement
A Partnership Approach to Public Policy Procurement in BC
Download Here: FAIR AND TRANSPARENT: IMPLEMENTING THE CAMF FOR CONSTRUCTION PROCUREMENT
On January 14, 2013, the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA) officially published a fourteen-page review of industry concerns, providing practical recommendations to improve the planning, implementation, and operation of assets in BC’s public sector.
Fair and Transparent: Implementing the CAMF for Construction Procurement stresses the need for partnership and outlines the struggle to successfully establish reasonable standards for government, Crown corporations and publicly-funded agencies’ use in capital asset planning.
The BCCA’s recommendations for public procurement policy include:
- facilitating a variety of procurement approaches, instead of favouring a single approach
- ensuring qualification criteria are actually relevant to the bidder’s ability to deliver the service
- requiring disclosure of public procurement results
- requiring audits with published results
- ensuring entities such as Shared Services and Partnerships BC do not compete with the private sector
- creating formal mechanisms for ongoing collaboration between industry and government in regard to procurement practices
