The revised guidelines for professional indemnity insurance (PII) for public works projects procured under the Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) were published on 9th February 2022.
These revised guidelines have been introduced in recognition of the significant changes in the cost and availability of PII over the last 18 months. The revised guidelines are designed to reflect the level of insurance currently available thereby ensuring that contractors and consultants can continue to participate in competitions for public works projects whilst maintaining levels of insurance that are proportionate to those projects.
The guidance and revised procurement documents associated with the procurement of works-related consultancy services can be found on the Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) website.
The guidance and revised procurement documents associated with the procurement of works contractors will be published before the end of February 2022.
Further notification will be provided at that time.
