Procurement & TenderingBack to Main Menu
Like many others we’re good at helping people spend money, but our core difference is that we can’t stand seeing companies wasting their limited budgets. That’s why we’ve dedicated ourselves to becoming experts in getting the best procurement outcomes for our clients. We treat your dollars as if they were our own when we scrutinise tenderers to make sure every cent of spend is worthwhile.
When it comes to tendering, we’ve prepared, managed and reviewed countless tenders of all shapes, sizes and values. We’ve been working with tenders for so long they’ve become second nature to us and we’re happy to share our experience.
Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, we know that the procurement process is your gateway to success – and we’re here to help you get the most out of it.
Procurement is a unique and specialised discipline, and it needs unique and specialised management. Getting the most out of your procurement processes requires strong leadership and direction from a specialist who knows what they’re doing.
We’ve managed procurements on behalf of some of Australia’s largest companies and projects and have given clients confidence that their procurement activities are safely in commercially astute and capable hands.
So if you know what you want, and when you want it, our procurement management services can help you start bringing it all together and making it happen.
We all know the advantages and costs savings that can come from effective procurement methods, but not all of us have the budget to maintain an in-house procurement resource. Sometimes a particular procurement might be too large, too complex, or simply comes at a difficult time for your in-house procurement capability to handle with the attention it needs. The solution is outsourcing!
Why not let our experienced procurement specialists do the hard work for you, and leave you to simply make the key decisions at the appropriate times. You can free up your resources to concentrate on other tasks yet still maintain the critical control you need over the procurement process. We can assist with a particular element, such as evaluating tenders, or can undertake the complete process from initial planning right through to having a final contract ready for award and execution.
From your office or ours, if you want to take advantage of the benefits of procurement outsourcing, take advantage of the experts.
Procurement Planning & Strategy
Knowing what you want to buy is only half the battle, figuring out how to get it – and how to get it at the right quality, at the right time and for the right price – can be the real challenge. To get the most value from your procurements you need an effective strategy and a well-defined plan.
We’ve assisted clients to develop procurement strategies and procurement plans for some of Australia’s largest projects. We’ve also developed unique strategies for individual large, complex and critically significant procurements to ensure everything runs smoothly. We know how to reduce the likelihood of those nasty surprises giving you grief.
So if you’re ready to take the first step towards your next significant procurement or project, our procurement planning and strategy services will make sure that first step is solidly planted on the path to success.
Supplier Relationship Management
Behind every successful contract is an effective and positive working relationship with the supplier or contractor. Encouraging open and constant communication with suppliers and contractors is the key to good supplier relationship management, but it does take work.
We know the difference between a good contract and a successful job is good supplier relationship management, and we’ve helped many clients build, foster, repair and maintain positive relationships with their suppliers and contractors.
So if you’ve got the suppliers and contractors engaged but need a helping hand with getting the most out of what you have, we’ve got the experience you need to build and maintain those positive relationships.
Whether you are a buyer or a seller, tendering can be both exciting and daunting. The process of tendering can often appear straightforward, but we all know that the danger is in the detail. Ensuring your tendering and evaluation procedures are conducted fairly and accurately, or making sure your tender submission is conforming and competitive, are just some of the challenges we all face when tendering.
We’ve helped clients on both sides of the tendering process to achieve great results. We’ve prepared tenders, managed the tender process, evaluated tenders, conducted commercial and contract negotiations, made recommendations to award and prepared final documented agreements for execution. We’ve worked on large tenders, small tenders and everything in between.
So whether you need assistance running a tender, evaluating a tender or responding to a tender, we’ve got you covered with the experience and expertise you need for success.
Warranty & Defect Support
Have you received a supply that was not fit for purpose or is underperforming? Are there defects in the works you have recently had installed? You might have a contractual warranty or defects liability period you can rely on to oblige your contractor or supplier to rectify the situation at no cost to you. For contractors and suppliers, you might be facing an inappropriate claim for warranty or defect that you consider is outside of your obligation to rectify or address.
Whatever side of the warranty or defect claim you may be on, understanding your entitlements and obligations is important for ensuring your issue is addressed with minimal cost and disruption to you. We’ve helped clients realise significant savings and avoid unnecessary expense with our proactive warranty and defect support services.
If you’re looking for astute management of your warranty or defect issue, look no further. We’re here to help you get the technical and commercial outcomes you need.
