The process explained

This toolkit summarises the process used by Manchester City Council (MCC), with supplementary best practice guidance from Constructing Excellence.

There is no one correct process. You might need to adapt the MCC process to suit local requirements.

The phases and stages in the process are:

1. Demonstrating the need
2. Seeking approval
3. Preparing the papers
4. Pre-qualifying
5. Short listing
6. Negotiating
7. Appointing
8. Allocating projects
9. Constructing
10. Operating and maintaining
