Constructionline

Constructionline is the UK's largest certified pre-qualification database, saving the construction industry over £500 million a year in administration. Already used by over 60% of local authorities, it reduces duplication and saves time and money by encouraging organisations to use a single source for pre-qualification. All suppliers on the online database have met a government approved pre qualification criteria and obtained accreditation.

Constructionline is a public private partnership between the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (formerly the DTI) and Capita Business Services. As a national online database, it is the UK's largest register for pre-qualified contractors and consultants. Its aim is to improve efficiencies for buyers and suppliers in the construction industry, specifically by reducing the duplication of work and administration relating to the process of pre-qualifying suppliers for construction contracts.

Over 8,000 buyers from 1,900 organisations throughout the UK already use the database to source pre-qualified suppliers in the construction sector. They range from public sector bodies such as the NHS, local authorities, police and universities, to private sector businesses such as major contractors, small construction firms and consultants. Constructionline is open to public and private sector organisations and endorsed by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform. The OGC Common Minimum Standards and The Local Government Task Force also recommend using Constructionline as part of the pre-qualification and tendering process.
