1 What is procurement?
1.1 The overall process of acquiring construction woks or services?
2 Factors affecting the selection of the type of procurement
2.1 Scope of wk: size, complexit
2.2 Programme: start/ finish dates
2.3 Client Brief: commercial/ public sector etc.
2.4 Risk. priority: time, cost, quality
2.5 Current mkt: inflation, financial stability, availability of specialists skills etc.
3 Types of Procurement
3.1 what are the main procurement methods?
3.1.1 Design and Build Design and Build procurement what is it? where the MC is responsible for the design, planning, organisation, control and construction of the works to the employer the Emp. sends out a set of ER & the MC responds with Contractors Proposals which inc the price 4 the wks how does it work? when might it be appropriate where there is a need 4 an early start on site: can overlap design & construction where Emp wishes 2 min risk: MC take on resp 4 design Tech complex prj: benefit of using MC expertise what contracts can be used? JCT D&B MP Not so much SBC +CD IFC +CD MW + CD NEC Options C/D/E/F FIDIC Conditions of contract 4 plant & Design & Build Advantages?

3.1.2 Traditional/ general contracting what is traditional procurement? design completed by the clients design team b4 competitive tendering MC builds what the designers have specified Appointment of a contractor is commonly by competitive tender, but less usually by negotiation The client has control over design, quality. Generally there is no design responsibility on the contractor. design and construction are separate sequential processes programme for the project tends to be relatively long certainty on construction costs contract figure is usually known at the outset risks are balanced as between the parties e traditional lump sum approach in terms of cost, design and quality is a relatively low risk procurement option for the client when might traditional procurement be appropriate? If emp has design prepared f design is substantially completed by time of contract selection client wishes 2 retain control over design & spec cost certainty at start of site is important the shortest overall programme is not the clients priority what contracts might be used with traditional procurement? JCT SBC - Q/XQ/AQ IFC MW NEC Option A/C/D/E/F FIDIC conditions of contract for construction Advantages of traditional procurement? Ability 2 accommodate chg Competitive fairness & transparent procedure Inc value 4 money Control over design & materials Price certainty b4 commencement well known procedures Direct contractural relationship between Cient & designers Programme commitment from MC b4 entering in2 contact LAD recoverable if delays early cost/ time commitment Disadvantages of traditional procurement? needs 2 fully detail design b4 tender if not complete b4 tender - cost, time cert reduced Pro duration may b longer than other types -its a sequential process no input into design and planning from MC strategy based on price competition dual point of responsibility - DT for design & contractor 4 construction
3.1.3 Construction management What is it? Emp: direct contract with each trade contractors (TC) & utilises expertise of a construction Manger who act as a consultant 2 coordinate contract how does it work? TC: carry out wrk The construction man (CM) supervises the construction process & coordinates DT CM has no contractural link with TC ir DT CM role: prep of prog; determine req 4 facilities; b.down proj in 2 wrk pack; get tenders; co-ord & supervise wrks when is it appropriate? large/complex proj where ads of Cm r put 2 good use e.g. upfront buildability knowledge; prog advice; specialist input from TC; early start on site is KEY Flex in design, procurement, construction strategy where price certainty b4 commencement is NOT KEY where client is EXPERIENCED in construction what contracts can be used? JCT CM/A CM/TC Advantages? prj duration reduced by overlapping design & construction CM contribute 2 design & prj planning processes roles, risk and relationships 4 all parties r clear chg 2 design accommodated without paying ££££ £ may be lower due 2 direct contracts with TC Client has redress 2 TC through direct contractual links Disadvantages Price certainty not achieved until last trade package let changes 2 later packages may affect earlier packages - £££ Need an informed , pro-active client client has lots of consultants & contractors 2 deal with - no single POC - more fees

A different way of structuring a business relationship Involves 2 or more orgs working 2gether to achieve specific mutual objectives 2 deliver continous measurable relationships project partnering all members of a professional team become involved in the partnering process at the design stage (inc MC) Ownership of risk is spread between the parties and a collaborative approach is encouraged to delivering the solution and overcoming problems strategic partnering? A long-term relationship for a number of prj/works that will last over a long period of time. Framework agreements allow this and are then implemented on a project/project basis. Framewrok agreement - an agreement between MC/suppliers/emp. it provides an agreement to fix the T's & Cs for future purchases. subject 2 inflation key characteristics of partnering TRUST INCENTIVE; impacts on prices/conflict/disputes etc. ADMIN BURDEN - restrict it 2 large projects CONTRACTS PPC 2000 Key stakeholder of prj (client/MC/consultants) single only one contract NEC OPTION X12 BUT does not create a MULTI-PARTY CONTRACT JCT FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT stategic partnering contract NEC 3 FRAMEWORK CONTRACT Strategic partnering contract key performance indicators enable all those involved in the construction supply chain to est. how they are performing on a project What is integrated supply chain? objective of understanding & working wholly in the interests of the project client rather than immediate client BENEFITS conflict reduced better COMMUNICATION better value for client improved BUILDABILITY better predictability of time & cost
3.1.5 Measured Term in the case where there will not be a tender amount or Contract Sum so the FA will need to b built up from zero amount to an 'Ascertained Final Sum' detailing measured and valued areas of the project
3.1.6 Serial Contracting A new procurement strategy which provides an incentive to the contractor based on performance through KPI achievement as set out in the Contract. The Contractor will be awarded with an incentive project if project KPIs are met and project completed ahead of time.
4 Financial Basis of Procurement
4.1 Lump Sum
4.1.1 contract sum is determined before construction work is started
4.1.2 JCT Contracts ‘with quantities’ are priced on the basis of drawings and firm bills of quantities.
4.1.3 JCT ‘Without quantities’ means a contract priced on the basis of drawings and usually another document, such as a specification or work schedules.
4.1.4 synonymous with traditional procurement methods
4.1.5 common law: contractor is entitled 2b paid lump sum when it completes the works (Construction Act gives contractors right 2 payment by installment)
4.2 Re-measurement
4.3 Reimbursable
4.4 Target Cost
4.4.1 AKA: share gain/pain
4.4.2 if cost exceed the GMP the contractor and emp share the extra cost of the overspend and likewise share the saving is below.
4.4.3 INCENTIVE based 4 MC 2 manage effectively tendering & construction process & agree of account with subbies
4.5 Guaranteed or Agree Max Price
4.5.1 A lump sum contract under which there is no adj of tender price unless SCOPE req. by client chgs.
4.5.2 the MC inc add risk involced in design dev process in tender price
4.5.3 ADVANTAGES: greater price certainty; MC takes risk of design dev & unforeseen occurances greater control of overspending - MC interest 2 alert the team to expensive items of Design Dev Quicker settlement of FA
4.5.4 AKA: cost-type contract (also known as an open-book contract)
4.5.5 What is it? contractor is compensated for actual costs incurred plus a fixed fee subject to a ceiling price contractor is responsible for cost overruns, unless the GMP has been increased via formal change order.
4.5.6 DISADVANTAGES CLEINT pay 2 much - MC risk allowance may be higher than in reality Scope change are V. £££ Can b adversarial - trying 2 decide whether changes are design development or scope cahnges
5 Tendering
5.1 Standard rules of tendering
5.1.1 NJCC rules contractors pre-selected on say NJCC basis 1. est skill 2. integrity 3. repsonsibility 4. proven competence & character 5. size of work no more than 6 tenderers. If pre-selection is done beforehand then tenderers can be selected on price alone good MC have the following: recent exp necessary skills good manage & org struct spare capacity & good Financial standing
5.2 Single/ 2 stage tendering - competitive/ negotiated
5.2.1 Two stage tendering ADVANTAGES: early appointment + MC work alongside DT suitable 4 large complex sch where collaboration with MC would b an Advantage 2 use expertise DISADVANTAGES: ££ 2 b paid 4 negotiation; comp reduced risk £ can occur as certain items r not tied down until contract sum agreed Purpose of the 1st stage select suitable MC by means of limited comp Purpose of 2nd stage negotiated process with the selected contractor on the basis of the 1st stage
5.2.2 Single ADVANTAGES: cost certainty b4 construction competative fairness well know procedure DT under client control Public accountability DISADVANTAGES: slow start on site MC not involved in Design - no buildability adversarial cleint respon 4 DT performance difficult to remove contractor in event of non-performance reliant on quality & completeness of contract docs what is it? separates the process with selecting the MC from the process 4 determine the price 4 the works Used when it is desired 2 obtain benefits of comp and have ad of bringing a MC into planning of proj and gain early comencement Negotiated client has a preference for a particular firm used when a MC ha already done g8t work 4 client non compitition (lead 2 higher price?) but may b worth it if they do a good job quickly Contrac Sum arrived by negotiation
5.3 Compilation of tender lists
5.3.1 financial standing & record
5.3.2 size of company
5.3.3 general experience and reputation in the area of work
5.3.4 reputation of quality
5.3.5 Reputation for timely completion
5.3.6 reputation for claims
5.3.7 exp of the chosen contractural role
5.3.8 management structure
5.3.9 H&S record
5.3.10 capacity 2 undertake the works
5.4 Complication of tender documents
5.5 What is tendering?
5.5.1 process of obtaining bids for construction work can b competitive or negotiation
5.6.1 WHAT indiscriminate request 4 tenders Advert placed in local paper/technical press inviting contractors to apply for tender documents Gives character of work Deposit usually required to deter frivolous applications
5.6.2 ADVATAGES No charge of favouritism gives opp 4 capable firms u might not have put on a tender list Should secure Max benefit from competition
5.6.3 DISADVANTAGES danger lowest tender is inexperienced OR has made lots of errors No guarantee the lowest is capable or financially stable Total cost of tendering is increased
5.7 MEAT = Most Economically Advantageous Tender
