Procurement roundup

Mace supply chain management director Brian Moone has been named as steering group chairman of Achilles BuildingConfidence, a leading supplier pre-qualification and verification programme for UK construction companies. He will be responsible for over-seeing the growth and development of the community – where 19 of the country’s biggest construction firms use a single pre-qualification and audit process to shortlist suppliers for work. Moone was voted by his peers to head up the group. Achilles BuildingConfidence community manager Lee Brunsden said: “That someone of Brian’s calibre is playing a key role in driving forward the development of BuildingConfidence is testament to the gravitas of the community in terms of streamlining pre-qualification and setting standards across the construction industry.”
