The Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has today (September 23), announced the creation of the new National Infrastructure Plan Strategic Engagement Forum.
This will bring government and industry together to help deliver the UK’s infrastructure needs.
NIPSEF will be co-chaired by Alexander on behalf of government and Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE from the Infrastructure Alliance, on behalf of industry.
The forum will ensure that government is able to call on industry to facilitate delivery of the National Infrastructure Plan, the government’s central plan for UK infrastructure.
The Infrastructure Alliance brings together four leading trade bodies – the Association for Consultancy and Engineering, the Civil Engineering Contractors Association, the Construction Products Association and the Institution of Civil Engineers. The Alliance works in close partnership with CITBConstructionSkills, the sector skills council for the industry.
