Best value second interim report

Anon. (2002) Best value second interim report. [Report]


This first interim report on ‘best value’ reviewed the academic literature relating to ‘best value’ and illustrated the varying interpretations that the concept of ‘best value’ has attracted. It also examined current state of the literature on best value in construction project procurement. ‘Best value’ was explored from the perspective of both the business enterprise and public sector. It was concluded that ‘best value’ in the public sector is considerably more complex. This second interim report explores how ‘best value’ has been implemented in the UK. Focus is directed towards the UK, particularly Scotland’s approach to examine the complexity of implementation of ‘best value’ in the public sector context. Scotland has been recognised as a leader in the field of ‘best value’ in the public sector (Curry, 1999; Wisniewski and Stewart, 2001, 2004; Jaconelli and Sheffield, 2000)
