Supplier Relationship & Management

Adding value through managed relationships

Helping you to deliver best value from managing supplier relationships and performance.

Procurement professionals are often criticised for a “let and forget” culture, but what does this mean? This is where they let one contract and swiftly move on to the next one, paying little or no attention to whether the contract delivered the value they expected. This is particularly relevant in the construction sector, where procurement and commercial teams are in silo and often from diverse professional disciplines.

The School has developed two e-learning modules to help experienced procurement and QS professionals understand how to manage performance post-contract award, as well as how to get the best from supplier relationships for long term, mutual benefit.
