Integrating the commercial and supply chain
Grontmij has extensive experience in leading the commercial and supply chain integration of capital programmes by coordinating the end-to-end commercial processes. This ensures that materials and services are integrated and procured effectively by the streamlining of the supply process whilst maximising opportunities.
As the procurement of services, plant and equipment and subcontract packages form a substantial part of any utilities expenditure there is a significant benefit to be gained from having a fully integrated and efficient supply chain. Grontmij supports client organisations by helping to manage the capital delivery, to give programme visibility to the supply chain, to improve performance, and to drive down cost whilst maintaining value. Centralised and integrated procurement, improves purchasing power and greater leverage in the supply chain can be obtained.
Strategic procurement planning
Improved planning and coordination together with appropriate vendor selection enhances visibility and control of the procurement process. We guide this process by establishing a strategic procurement plan, utilising common terms and conditions for second/third tier suppliers to reflect an equitable approach to risk and aligned incentives to drive best value.
Early supplier selection, the use of frameworks where appropriate and long term relationships with year on year efficiency targets forms the basis for supply chain integration with the aim of delivering continuous improvement of cost and performance and minimising waste.
Grontmij can provide advice on best practice for procurement strategies and also for purchasing tools and systems. The coordination of procurement with technical delivery is essential to maximising efficiencies. This involves technical understanding of the supply chain use of standard products and offsite build techniques.
In addition we provide services in the following areas:
• Commercial advice for terms and conditions and incentivisation
• Procurement strategies
• Framework management
• Programme management
• Subcontract administration
