The pipeline document is designed to complement information provided on the ISNI Information Portal (www.isni.gov.uk).
• The ISNI Information Portal provides a wide range of information on construction projects (and their underpinning procurements) under the Executive’s Investment Strategy for Northern Ireland. With effect from May 2015, all bodies covered by NI Public Procurement Policy are required to maintain detailed information on infrastructure developments, including procurement information, on the ISNI Information Portal. This requirement is set out in Procurement Guidance Note PGN 02/15 (see link below).
• The pipeline differs from the Information Portal in two ways. Firstly, it has a focus on procurement opportunities that have not yet been tendered (i.e. only pre-procurement). Secondly, the pipeline document provides a longer-term view of potential deal flow and broad estimates of the timing of procurement opportunities over that term.
• Procurement opportunities within the pipeline encompass both construction works and construction related services (e.g. design).
