The aim of our procurement team is to provide the best possible financial services within the purchasing and supply management sector. This is to reduce the cost by removing contractor capital mark-up being applied and to enable equipment to be procured to support programmed dates. This is delivered as follows: -
We deal with the financial services for designated clients and their projects. Performing project monitoring and data collection to determine if a project is progressing according to the budget. We provide our clients with tailored strategic sourcing and procurement service, including; managing project schedules, raising requisitions on their financial system, thus enabling the internal client team to approve and output a purchase order and constantly running reports to review project funds. We take the stress out of purchasing for our clients, reduce costs and add value to this activity.
The management of this is dealt with centrally by our procurement and technical team. With the assistance of our project managers who have a site presence, the procurement team can manage the budget for each project with the proper understanding of what’s happening on each site, resulting in the adoption of all possible cost reductions that can be made by utilising stock product. We ensure that all necessary equipment orders are raised, tracked and able to achieve the required delivery dates. We liaise with the suppliers to understand shutdowns and holidays in global locations. We trace each project with its own procurement document together with consolidated trackers, this allows regular and accurate client reporting on financial progress.
