Procurement is a multifaceted and involved process - from sourcing, tendering and vetting suppliers, to purchasing, supply chain management and establishing KPI’s. At each point in the procurement cycle, there’s usually an opportunity to make savings: Our procurement consultants save clients an average of 16% on overall procurement-related costs – whilst rigidly adhering to all relevant procurement standards.
We work with you at every stage of a procurement project, starting with an upfront strategic review. Its aim is to find ways of getting the best value out of the buying process. Our consultants advise on every type of contract, from total facilities management agreements, to individual contracts for cleaning services, lift maintenance, M&E services, catering, IT and front of house. Our own procurement technology platform ensures full transparency throughout whilst streamlining the procurement process.
We’re also compliant with BS8572 quality management processes as well as RICS Professional Statement for Facilities Management Procurement 1st Edition 2018. A sign of our commitment to working to consistently high standards.
We’ve procured more than £100m of contracts in the last 18 months alone. Our consultants worked on the iconic ‘Walkie Talkie’ building in London, as well as Zig Zag, One New Change and Nova. All of which means we have the experience, skill and technical expertise to support you on any type, or scale, of project.
Putting your procurement processes in the hands of a third party obviously requires trust. As well as our long history of providing first rate procurement advice and services, we also sit on the British Standards panel for procurement of facilities services. When we say we know what we’re doing, we mean it.
