This note is intended for all those contracting authority staff involved in the planning and delivery of public works projects. It is applicable guidance under the Scottish Public Finance Manual.
Outline of guidance
Our guidance consists of three handbooks. Handbook 1: Project Initiation and Business Cases was published in May 2019 while Handbook 2: Construction Procurement was published in December last year. Handbook 3 provides guidance on the construction phase and chapter 1 provides an overview of this phase of a built asset project. Further chapters will be published in due course.
Please bring this construction policy note to the attention of all those staff involved in the procurement or delivery of construction activities.
