We provide bespoke strategic procurement advice on all types of projects regardless of whether they are one off projects of part of a programme or portfolio.
Procurement strategies should provide a systematic means of analysing costs and benefits of various ways that project objectives can be achieved.
We carry out appraisals at the earliest possible stage in project development before any commitment is given to a particular option to:
- Clearly define project objectives
- Identify practical ranges of options
- Quantify the costs and benefits of each option
- Consider qualitative aspects
- Identify the preferred option and map actions required
We examine the issues and assist in the development and evaluation of a project or service delivery with its experience and knowledge of costs, benefits and risks.
As part of the process we undertake a feasibility study, which becomes a key part of any procurement decision making process. Feasibility studies assess the viability of a project over its expected life and indicate the probable return, either at the point of sale or over a period of time, generally using discounted cash flow techniques.
Sensitivity analyses can be used to highlight those variables that have the greatest impact on project returns. The feasibility report can also assist in the process of obtaining project finance.
All our advice will consider our clients attitude and approach to:
- Time performance and delays
- Cost control and claims
- Quality control over the final product
- Risk between the parties
- Industrial relations and statutory obligations
- Dispute resolution
Our extensive experience and expertise around the world means we really are uniquely positioned to provide independent and specialist procurement advisory services which take account of all our clients' needs.
