star this property answer text <p>The most recently published UK Construction Purchasing Manager’s Index, for October 2014, indicated a strong overall increase in UK construction output albeit with slightly weaker growth than in previous months. The index remains much higher than the long-run average and the industry is optimistic about the future.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills continues to support the industry by working with the industry to remove barriers to growth by improving the planning system, access to finance, and easing the burden of regulation.</p><p> </p><p>On the demand side, we are stimulating the house building industry - in Autumn Statement 2013 my Rt. Hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced a £1bn extension of the Local Infrastructure Fund for large scale housing sites, to unlock around 250,000 homes over 6 years. We are also stimulating infrastructure development. The National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) sets a strategic vision for forthcoming infrastructure needs. It has identified a pipeline of over 500 projects costing around £250bn to 2015 and beyond.</p><p> </p><p>On the supply side, we are working closely with the Construction Leadership Council to ensure that the industry is well placed to respond to growing markets, tackling issues such as skills, innovation, sustainability, productivity, efficiency and export performance.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Since August 2012 the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has benefitted from having central records of contracts let by the Department. However, the operational management of each contract continues to rest with the respective project SRO (Senior Responsible Owner) or team, and there may often be valid reasons for any subsequent contract changes. The Department is reviewing its Commercial Strategy and expects to increase management information in this area soon but presently lacks the capacity to marry contracts let with actual payments made, and to do so would involve disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This information is not held centrally because procurement and contract management responsibility is devolved to policy teams in DECC. Changes of price often occur when there is need for additional services. This involves negotiation will the contractor and is documented as a contract variation. The price for consultancy services is usually based upon agreed rates following supplier selection via competitive tender of the Crown Commercial Services ConsultancyOne framework. The price may change according to many variables depending on the nature of the work and circumstances.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Global Summit set in motion a series of unprecedented practical steps and commitments. In addition, it significantly raised the profile of this issue and placed it firmly on the international policy agenda. Following the Summit, we are now working to implement the outcomes of the Summit and to incorporate efforts to prevent sexual violence in conflict into all aspects of international conflict prevention, stabilisation, peacebuilding, security and justice, humanitarian and human rights work. This is based on a programme of political and practical activity that includes: - Implementing the International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict through advocacy, capacity building and national application; -Encouraging governments to implement fully in domestic legislation the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and for more states to accede to the Rome Statute and to implement fully its provisions in domestic law; - Pressing governments to do more to support HRDs and building further the capacity of local civil society and grass roots organisations to document and respond to acts of sexual violence and to provide support to survivors; and - Encouraging governments to do more to include sexual violence issues in their doctrine and training and to enforce initiatives on military conduct and discipline. We are also working with and encouraging those governments who announced new plans or commitments at the Summit to implement them as fully and as quickly as possible. This country activity is complemented by ongoing UK support to the full range of multilateral bodies so as to ensure that PSVI and the outcomes from the Summit are fully integrated into their daily activity as well as future international events. During the UN General Assembly in New York in September, I co-hosted, with the UN Secretary General's Special Representative on tackling sexual violence, Zainab Bangura, a conference attended by over 120 representatives of countries, international bodies, and Non-Governmental Organisations, to agree concrete steps for turning the Global Summit's conclusions into real change on the ground.</p>
