McComb Partnership are experts in procuring projects to suit a clients exact and precise needs.
With over 20 years experience of procurement of: –
We accept (and deliver) the most difficult of challenges no matter how complex. We understand the problems of ensuring OJEU compliance, compliance with Standing Financial Instructions, ensuring that the procurement and tender process is transparent and that the project can demonstrate value for money. We are skilled at ensuring procurement compliance in accordance with Local Government and Government Procurement Service guidelines.
We tailor procurement advice around your aspirations, goals and deliverables, and can provide procurement methods to deliver projects quickly (starting in just a few weeks), guaranteed maximum price, least cost schemes (when the budget just does not go far enough).
A vital part of the procurement process is establishing the commercial strategy and selection of the contract early on. We will work through the pros and cons of each option with you so that you feel comfortable with the proposed contract. Our contracts are written to ensure that the client obtains precisely what was asked for without large claims, unforeseen risks, high administration simply because we take the time to know the project – no matter how complex, understand the risks and ensure best value from project commencement to whole life cost evaluation.
In the past year we have assisted a blue chip company with the development of a total contract strategy to be applied over a whole portfolio of projects in excess of £200m, to enable the customer to ensure process performance, commercial strength and surety. We have provided another client with a complete commercial review of existing contract strategies and we have designed contracts and procurement lifecycles to reduce claims, dramatically reduce cost overrun and deliver projects on time.
We recently completed a contract for a healthcare cancer centre in East Africa, providing an American client with a robust form of contract under a FIDIC Red Book, tailored to US Government Funding regulations providing him with a fully compliant robust and well structured contract for tender.
