It can be difficult for local authorities to know whether they are getting value for money from contractors for road asset building and maintenance. At the same time, value for money in delivery of road maintenance services is a major objective for both central and local government.

REG aims to identify and promote procurement and delivery models that will enhance the sector’s ability to obtain value for money; and to gather, moderate and publish examples of good practice procurement. These should help local authorities avoid duplication and “reinventing the wheel”, while making procurement decisions that align with their needs and smart buying aspirations.
