New Construction Policy Note (CPN) 4/2021
We have published a new Construction Policy Note (CPN) which advises contracting authorities on how to review and where necessary strengthen arrangements for the inspection and assurance of construction work on site.
This note is for all those contracting authority staff involved in the planning and delivery of public works projects. It is applicable guidance to bodies in scope of the Scottish Public Finance Manual.
The key messages conveyed by this CPN include that contracting authorities should liaise with main contractors to evaluate the impact of labour and materials shortages on the delivery of construction as well as implement inspection and assurance measures as required to address any related risks to the specification and workmanship required by contracts.
