Delivering enhanced performance through procurement
There is compelling evidence that more competent procurement will enable projects to be more productive, be delivered on time and help satisfy the client. In essence, better procurement adds value.
In the built environment sector up to 80% of the spend with a main contractor is diverted to the supply chain. Procurement skills through the life of a contract and beyond are therefore essential to deliver value for money to the client.
The School’s Procurement Group brings together senior procurement professionals from across the industry, working in subgroups on four key areas of focus: De-carbonising the supply chain; Collaborative approaches; Engaging SMEs; Due diligence and supply chain mapping.
Our vision is an industry where everyone who buys something will have the skills and knowledge to procure effectively and sustainably.
