AMA Research has recently published the 4th Edition of its overview of Public Sector Construction in the UK, focusing on construction activity within the public sector healthcare, education, defence, custodial, justice and other public sectors in an age of government austerity and continuing public sector funding cuts.
The ongoing impact of the financial crisis has produced a more subdued recovery than expected and the Government has announced ‘significant real reductions’ in public sector spending after 2015, increasing the scale of public spending cuts in the June 2013 Spending Round by £1.5bn to £11.5bn over the next 2 years. Although health and education budgets are expected remain protected beyond 2015, spending on services such as the police, defence and justice could be cut by a third by 2017-18 if areas such as health and schools continue to be protected from cuts.
In addition, public sector capital spending has been cut very quickly since 2010, falling by 12% to £43.8bn in the current financial year, with further reductions expected in 2013-14 and 2014-15 and the austerity programme now expected to affect public sector capital spending levels to 2018.
As a result, public sector construction output continues to be adversely affected by the Government’s ongoing austerity measures and cuts to capital spending in healthcare and education. Public sector capital investment is not forecast to see any increase until 2014-15, and, as a result, output levels in the public sector are not expected to see any growth until at least 2015.
The Government has sought to moderate capital investment cuts with a series of spending commitments including increasing capital spending plans by £3bn a year from 2015-16, which will see the Government invest more in transport infrastructure and provide UK guarantees for major infrastructure projects. Public funding has also been announced for the Priority Schools Building Programme and Free Schools and Academies.
However, whilst these commitments do suggest longer-term support for the construction industry, funding is not expected to happen until after the next general election in 2015 leaving the construction industry with little short-term work to boost construction output and the size of public sector capital investment programmes in healthcare and education are now nowhere near those seen in previous years.
The Report includes a detailed analysis of the Government’s targets for capital spending in the public sector, an assessment of contractors output and anticipated opportunities for public sector construction work in the education, healthcare, defence, custodial and justice sectors over the next few years including progress under the various long-term healthcare, education and defence construction programmes.
We also review the Government’s spending plans and austerity measures as announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement and 2013 Budget and the outlook for public sector spending into 2017-18.
In addition, the Report specifically reviews the future of the main procurement routes and construction programmes used in public sector construction and their future under the Coalition, including the introduction of Private Finance 2 (PF2) to replace traditional PFI and healthcare procurement under the new NHS structure.
