Procurement

Developing and delivering procurement and supply chain strategies that get the best results from the market.

The successful delivery of a project is dependent on the quality of thought and approach that is adopted in both the definition and execution of the procurement process.

It is essential to select and engage appropriate supply chain partners who are contracted on commercial terms that are aligned to delivery of the required project objectives or business outcomes.

Leaving contract responsibilities open to interpretation can cause problems in the delivery of a project, while failing to adhere to relevant procurement legislation can leave the entire process open to legal or other governance challenges.
