The experience and dedication of our procurement professionals gives your design-build project an advantage. Thorough integration of procurement activities in the overall program management, design and construction processes allow for seamless delivery of engineering equipment and materials at the specified time.
Our team has executed projects across the spectrum of size and complexity, providing owners like you with the best opportunity for success. Our relationships with suppliers, subcontractors and service providers and our reputation in the industry allow us to offer the best overall procurement solution.
Procurement activities generally include supplier qualification, preparation and issuance of bid documents, tabulation and evaluation of proposals, negotiations, development of purchase recommendations, issuance and administration of purchase orders (through close-out), material and design submittal, expediting, and source inspection. The key to the procurement effort is proactive planning with a focus on long lead or critical items.
Desired material delivery dates are achieved by a well-planned expediting process. Expediting activities are planned for each project before orders are placed. The activities are designed to detect and resolve potential problems at the earliest possible stage.
Supplier Qualification and Quality Assurance
We require suppliers and contractors in our database to possess effective programs for quality assurance and quality control. We verify the effectiveness of these programs by reviewing written documents and/or auditing the program before or during the procurement phase.
