Strategic Procurement Projects Value Integrated Site

For those who do not handle these kinds of procurement for bespoke or particularly large projects regularly, it can be intimidating and complex to navigate. Our experience in the private sector (on the other side of the negotiation) allows us to understand both sides and address expectations, fears, risks, desires, and strategies across counterparties. We ensure that:

  • Deadlines are met
  • Budgets are maintained
  • Independence and good governance are maintained
  • Surprises and delays are minimised
  • We have the right people to do the job
  • Value for money outcomes are achieved
  • We engage with our clients in an integrated and collaborative way so that they can learn and stay involved from start to finish

Professional Team

With increasing demand to consider a broad range of factors such as consumer needs and expectations, sustainability, total cost of ownership and transparency requirements, a more strategic approach to procurement and sourcing is absolutely necessary.
Tell Advisory work collaboratively with our clients to develop high quality technical and commercial documentation that is used to engage the market responsible for delivering the services required to meet the project objectives.
