Striving for the Gold Standard: A Practical Guide to framework selection for public sector construction is a handy booklet for any public sector organisation seeking to understand how to go about choosing a framework within the 24 guidelines set out in the recent Gold Standard Framework report led by Professor David Mosey for the Cabinet Office.

Working together with a number of the UK’s largest building contractors, this practical guide has pulled out the fundamental principles of Professor David Mosey’s report and frames them in 7 simple questions to ask any framework to get a better understanding of what they should expect.

 Kingsley Clarke, Operations Lead at SCF said:

“We recognise that the 24 recommendations set out in the Gold Standard Framework report are complex. This document pulls out the fundamental principles that sit at the core of the Gold Standard guidelines and frames them in a set of simple questions and pointers that you, as a public sector organisation, can take to any framework.

“We’ve consulted with our contractors and listened to our clients to create this resource and we hope that it helps you to ask the right questions towards a better understanding of how a Gold Standard framework should be operating.”


The booklet is authored by Southern Construction Framework in collaboration with BAM, Willmott Dixon, Speller Metcalfe, Kier, GRAHAM and Galliford Try.
