I have been contacted recently by businesses who already hold Constructionline accreditation to assist them to apply for the Gold Membership.
In September 2017 Constructionline, the leading provider of procurement and supply chain management services, introduced an increased range of membership accreditations.
Typically my existing clients hold the familiar typical Constructionline accreditation which has now been renamed to Silver (Level 2).
Constructionline explained that “The new Gold membership (Level 3) increases the level of scrutiny and risk management by extending the mandatory PQQ and including a mandatory Health and Safety Accreditation. The enhanced PQQ question set now includes verification of Environmental Management, Quality Management, Equalities and Diversity, and extended Health and Safety. It ensures buyers keep up with legislation in areas such as Modern Slavery, Anti-Bribery and Corruption, and Equal Opportunities, giving peace of mind across all these areas of governance”.
In addition there is a new Platinum membership (Level 4), aimed at high-value, high-risk contracts and work categories, adds an on-premise audit and assessment.
So why have the new levels been introduced? Constructionline explained in their press release in September 2017 that “Providing an increasing level of risk management, the enhanced membership levels are in demand from buyers looking to get real-time updates of non-conformities across their entire supply chain and as such receive increased assurance that their supply chain is not introducing additional risk into their business”.
Are you considering applying for Constructionline for the first time or upgrading your existing membership?
Let me take the strain of managing your application, and let you get on with running your business. It’s really easy to work with me! It all starts with me sending you a checklist which outlines all the information that is required to submit your new application or upgrading your existing application.
The application which is completed online asks for information about your company, copies of company policies etc. If you do not have these policies, I can work with you to tailor policies to suit your business.
At the end of the application process, you will be provided with all of your documentation in an electronic version for you to save on your system. I can also arrange to help you with the annual renewal application or when your documents expire and have to be updated on the Constructionline portal.
