Back to Working Group Forums

Join our panel of Housing Forum Members and key speakers who will share their insights and debate issues.


Procurement is a major issue in housing delivery and a Housing Forum Working Group chaired by Matthew Goulcher, Managing Director, Levitt Bernstein, has canvassed opinion on procurement reform as a key stage in formulating a Best Practice Guide for the industry.

Key topics:

  • Forming the team
  • Procuring good design
  • Quality on site
  • Construction and Risk Management
  • Contracting Methodology


“A Different Approach to Procurement?” was planned to be a key theme for debate at our May 2020 National Conference (now scheduled for 20 October), so this is your opportunity to add your opinion to the ongoing debate.


We will be joined by the stakeholder engagement team at MHCLG – who are seeking non attributable views to brief politicians and senior civil servants – your views are important.


Send your questions in advance for our panelists to Shirley Heapy by close of play 26 May at
