Open Call for PQQs

Project Compass CIC was set up in 2013, to provide a new single point of digital access to all public procurement tenders within the UK and EU built environment.

ProjectCompass was successfully awarded funding to enable it to research and document all UK OJEU Built Environment notices from 2009 to 2014, leading to the production of a major research report and publication in Autumn 2014.

This report highlights the patterns and trends within public procurement of, for example, Notice Values, Project Aggregation, Lots -sizes and values, Quality of Notice Information, Threshold Requirements, Contract Periods, Geographical Distribution, Calendar Distribution etc. It provides an invaluable tool for those wishing to understand the procurement of design services in public works, and a benchmark for evaluating the market over time.

As the ‘Notices’ provide only the first link in the chain and many PQQs are no longer available online, ProjectCompass is asking all UK practitioners and professionals within the built environment industry to urgently forward to the email address below all uncompleted / blank PQQs to help deepen and broaden the value of the findings.
