Overview

The first half of the morning will consist of a legal overview of the clauses and options within the NEC form of contract and lessons learnt from their implementation. This will be followed with details of how collaboration has been built into government contracts within the Northern Ireland Centres of Procurement Expertise (CoPEs). 

The second half of the morning will consist of a presentation from Belfast City Council on collaboration and early contractor involvement on the Leisure Transformation Programme and how the lessons learned have been used in subsequent projects. This will be followed by a presentation from Translink on the Lagan Junction to Yorkgate Track Renewal project which required extensive early contractor involvement to develop the delivery strategy for this complex project. 

Throughout the morning there will be breakout sessions and panel discussions so that attendees can share their experience of collaboration and discuss opportunities to improve the contractual arrangements associated with collaboration.
