  1. This article is silly.
    Every Construction Contractor that intends to meet any KPI’s understands the importance of following a strict Procurement Plan and Schedule.
    The only way we make money is for the PM to control every element that contributes to the Critical Path.

  2. The three key enablers seem to consider procurement from the contractor’s position – if we truly want to change procurement to be fair, provide greater certainty of meeting objectives and creating whole life cycle benefits then a whole project approach is necessary.

    Consideration should be made to changing contractual terms to truly promote collaboration rather than shifting risk; methods that ensure planned objectives are met, particularly in infrastructure where unknowns are higher; and building trust with delivery partners to protect budgets so clients are not put at risk. It’s time to break down silos and start acting as a team!
