Supporting Construction in Procurement and Supply Best Practice


Construction Senior Leaders Group

Procurement teams in the construction sector have come under more pressure during the COVID-19 crisis. With supply and labour shortages, making sites safe and complex supply chains.


In order that we could give construction specific, world-class procurement support, we established the CIPS Construction Leaders Group. Made up of Senior Leaders from major firms, they work with our experts to drive excellence in construction procurement and supply.

Supporting Construction Post Grenfell

Following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in June 2017, the subsequent inquiry highlighted some inadequacies in the construction sector.


CIPS led a Working Group set up to tackle competency failings identified in the Hackitt Review, Building a Safer Future, which highlighted short comings in procurement and commercial practices, with too much focus on price and profit at the expense of safety and risk mitigation.

CIPS are commited to supporting individuals in developing and maintaining their knowledge in procurement and supply.


MCIPS status indicates your procurement proficiency to other professionals and employers.
