"Procurement is the process of specifying, sourcing and
purchasing goods and services at the best value with consideration
given to suitability, quality, cost and delivery."
The cost of acquisitions often represents a large portion of
the total costs that a business must meet. As markets worldwide
become increasingly competitive, the cost of acquisitions is more
closely examined. Procurement services, used effectively, can
reduce costs and improve the efficiency of a business. We offer
a range of procurement services to public and private sector organisations,
working in partnership with you to help you achieve the best value
in procurement transactions.
We manage your procurement process from start to finish. Initially,
we assist you in your decision of what you need to purchase. We
assess and select the most appropriate method of procurement and
we talk to suppliers, obtaining specifications and quotes. After
evaluating supplier responses we award the contract and manage
the delivery process. We keep you informed during the process
with regular reports.
The procurement services we provide are tailored to your individual
needs and can be funded externally or financed from your own resources.
We offer direct purchasing services as an agent, or we may provide
goods or services that combine procurement with the provision
of credit. Often we will work alongside your own procurement department,
providing expert local knowledge and advice.
Typical procurement transactions include:
Commodities (Oil, coal, rice, grain, etc.)
Services (Engineering, design, maintenance)
Technology (Software, computers, communications)
Capital Equipment (Machine tools, generators, tractors)
Turn Key Plants (Power generation, asphalt production)
Construction (Hospitals, airports, factories)
