Welcome to the Design & Construction Procurement Project; the place where experts from the construction, design and buyer sectors meet to exchange ideas, present problems and find solutions in a collaborative environment.

Procurement Day 2015 another successful event!

The concept of the Procurement Project was formed during informal discussions with a number of Ontario-based professional associations representing general contractors, mechanical and electrical trade contractors. These groups were discussing common concerns regarding the procurement of construction services. But missing from the conversation were integral partners in the procurement process, namely the owners and buyers, architects and consulting engineers, interior designers and members of the risk management community.

And so the Procurement Project was born in the Fall of 2011 as 21 representatives from across the construction procurement spectrum met in Toronto, ON to begin working on solutions.

More than 100 influential construction, design and buyer professionals came together on April 16, 2012 for the inaugural Procurement Day forum. It was a candid discussion of the issues being faced by all sides of the procurement equation. The goal was to seek common ground and identify mutually satisfactory ways to address identified issues.

The Procurement Project continues to evolve and grow as the industry changes and needs arise. We encourage you to participate in our online exchange of ideas and public forums. Stay tuned for information about the 6th Procurement Day!
