Common Assessment Standard

Constructionline Gold just got better

What is the Common Assessment Standard?

We’ve been working with Build UK to help them develop the Common Assessment Standard. It’s a standardised set of questions, crafted from existing systems (like PAS 91) and from expert input from clients, suppliers and trade organisations. The new standard championed by Build UK and the Civil Engineering Association (CECA) has been long in development with its aims aligned with the Constructionline ethos of saving Suppliers time and most importantly money in the prequalification process.  The initiative is being overseen by an Interim Cross-Industry Body consisting of experts from organisations across the sector, including public and private sector clients, contractors and trade associations.

The standard is now available industry-wide and to make the process even easier for our Gold and Platinum members at Constructionline, we offer the Common Assessment Standard at no extra cost. As an existing member, all you need to do to qualify for the Common Assessment Standard is complete a few extra questions, no fuss, no extra cost and all the benefits.

About our Gold Membership

About our Gold Membership

Gold members can now get all the benefits of our Gold membership with the added bonus of the Common Assesment Standard for the same price.

We also conduct a number of further validation checks that we know are of interest to many of our buyers, using an enhanced prequalification questionnaire that goes beyond PAS91. We assess a company’s credentials for environmental management, quality management, equal opportunities, modern slavery act adherence and anti-bribery and corruption policies. Some of these policies form part of the Cabinet Office Selection Questionnaire (SQ), which the public sector is expected to comply with.

As well as enhanced prequalification, all Gold members are assessed for SSIP. Our Acclaim team is accredited to assess and award ‘Deemed to Satisfy’ SSIP certificates for health and safety – something that all construction buyers look for in supplier selection.
