EMCOR Group (UK), Lockheed Martin UK, NATS, Raytheon Systems Limited and VT Group have worked closely with PSL (Partnership Sourcing Limited) to achieve the PAS 11000 certification, awarded by BSI after they were audited in a pilot certification programme. The companies were presented with their awards by Lord Drayson, Minister for Science and Innovation.

He commented: “I’d like to congratulate PSL and BSI for driving this initiative. Every company should recognise the value of working together with their customers, suppliers and alliance partners. I am pleased to hear that PAS 11000 is already being adopted by MoD and other departments as the foundation for collaborative relationships.”

PAS 11000 is the world’s first collaborative relationship standard and provides a multi-stage approach to help organisations work together. The framework enables an organisation of any size and sector to apply good partnering practice and manage valuable business relationships. Following an approach from PSL, BSI is in the process of developing third party certification and part of that process requires the running of a pilot certification programme to ensure that the benefits derived through the process of certification are beneficial to those organisations utilising the standard. Andrew Morris, Business Development Director at BSI remarked: “One of the purposes of offering a pilot programme was to gauge demand for certification to this standard. That such prestigious organisations were so enthusiastic to contribute to it has reassured us that there is definitely a market for this service”.

The standard will be a single definition of best practice collaborative working and will provide formal recognition for companies who place significant emphasis on partnering. It will also allow businesses to standardise partnering across their organisations, ensuring a consistent approach and establishing processes to ensure that collaborative relationships are effective and optimised.

PAS 11000 is already being adopted by Government departments as the foundation for its collaborative relationships.

PSL CEO, Les Pyle, added that the emphasis on partnering has increased in the light of tougher trading conditions with businesses working hard to collaborate on cutting costs, remaining competitive and keeping the UK working.

He commented: “PAS 11000 is a tangible result of the importance that is now placed upon partnering and growing recognition that it is essential to building a successful business. We would urge business to provide input towards its continuing development.”
