Report of procurement strategy Dear Sir. o Has to ensure probity and transparency in procurement. The most important facts about procurement are: o Ensure that the procurement reflects it’s strategic objective and deliver top-quality services. because being just one firm working they can’t interact with other contractors. o It is in concordance with the current UK and EU legislation. so if the contractor it’s unable to respect his terms. The procurement it is about buying work. o Has to achieve the best money value for money. and the quickest time for the project to be finalized. and being just one contract you can ask for a performance bond. According to the Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC). and blame each other for any poor-finishing job. you can receive compensations . and you can choose the best one for you. after our firm designed your project. o It has to promote equality and sustainability . I have to ensure that you have all the information provided. The key facts in my decision are: o Awarding a single contract you can ensure that you will receive a well done project. o During the tendering process you can study all offers. for you project to receive the best price value. goods and services. so you can choose the best option possible. o It has to protect the environment in the best way possible. I am advising you that you should award a single contract for your project. or he is unable to finish the job.
and if the timetables are not respected you can give penalties to the contractor and in this way. the weather condition. o The contractor has to ensure that he is capable to provide all the equipment that is need in case of bad weather so that the project don’t have to stop because of this problem. The contractor responsibilities for this facts should be: o According to the fact that he has to built four new site roads. his estimated value it is around 3 million pounds. based on invoices. there will be many excavations on the site. but also about the soil conditions. So in my opinion there should be a few extra clauses regarding this problem. so that you can ensure that the project will be followed as much as possible. or not enough materials. as you can see on the project. not just procurement of materials and labor. so you can make the payments for them. and two new bridges. you can assure that the final price will not be much different from the first evaluation price. the reason that I recommend this solution is that so the contractor has no reasons to say. of course this will not involve the increasing prices of the materials and delivery during the project . and to result delays that could affect the cost of the project. o There should be a timetable for every task. I will put this clauses in a list for you: o The payments should be submitted after every task is completed. so the whole project should be divided into more stages so in this way you can insure that the job is properly done and the contractor has all the interest in doing his job properly. I would also recommend you to have some more extra clauses in the contract. because there are many key facts that it need to be discussed.As you can see in the project. because he is in charge of the quality and amount of materials. so the tendering process might take a while. o The contractor should also provide all the materials he needs. tasks that I was telling you above. o The contractor should be also compelled to take care of the cleanliness of all the machinery that it is coming and going from the site. that he received bad materials. which in this period of the year it is not so friendly and it could delay the time of finishing the project. so the contractor should be compelled to take care of all the extra soil that will be extracted.
but by asking for a performance bond from the contractor. Although I can tell about all this clauses. so there should not be much difference between the estimated time and the real time of the project. they all are just possible options of the contract. that before of the end of the project. The contractor can ask for a performance bond from a bank or from an insurance company.so you are protected against any loss of money. it is more likely that the project can increase his successful completion. Ltd v. then the conflicting terms may have to be scraped and replaced by a reasonable implication. Ex-Cell-O Corporation Ltd” 1979 by Lord Denning where he said that: The terms and conditions of both parties are to be construed together. If the differences are irreconcilable. You should also include a clause in the contract that will protect you from contractor negligence. so that the are mutually contradictory. . The contractor should fit in this time. so in case of an injury or even death on the site. 2008] After our firm developed the project the estimated time of construction.o Constructions are a very risky investment. the only responsible will be the contractor. [Contract Law. depending on the weather conditions. so if there appears a problem. You should also be aware for any breach of the contract. and the project was respected in all means by the contractor. every work done within the site should be verified properly by a team of specialist. This performance bond acts like an insurance for the whole project price in case that the contractor it is unable to finish the project. and usually the cost can be anywhere between 1 and 5 percent of the estimated cost of the project. you will not be responsible for that. and all areas of risk have been covered. should be around six to seven months. and so the contractor is the only responsible for his acts. and in this way you can assure that the job was properly done. of any kind you are fully covered against any loss of time and money. because the feasibility study is very well done. for not respecting the Health and Safety Laws on the site. during the project execution. If they can be reconciled so as to give harmonious result. all well and good. because as it is written in “Butler Machine Co. so in case of a problem. and that so is very important that this clause is stipulated in the contract. I would advise you. without any problems.
