A discrete section on partnering is included in this Practice Note. Part 1 Project Strategy 6 Procurement is a generic term embracing all those activities undertaken by a client seeking to bring about the construction or refurbishment of a building. Variously referred to as a method, path or system, procurement is initiated by devising a project strategy, which entails weighing up the benefits, risks and financial constraints which attend the project and which eventually will be reflected in the choice of contractual arrangements.
In every project the concerns of the client will focus on time, cost, and performance or quality, in relation both to design and to construction of the building. There are inherent risks associated with using any particular procurement strategy but equally important is the need for all parties to comply with their respective obligations; this is particularly important where responsibility for design and construction are separated. Identifying and dealing appropriately with risk at the outset is an integral part of any project strategy.
Procurement methods 8 There are three main procurement options, and the essential features of each are as follows: Traditional procurement sometimes termed conventional procurement. Appointment of a contractor is commonly by competitive tender, but less usually by negotiation. Full documentation is necessary for tendering purposes, including that from specialist sub-contractors, and adequate time is needed for the preparation of this.
The client has control over design, specified quality and standards etc. Generally there is no design responsibility on the contractor. Because design and construction are separate sequential processes, the overall programme for the project tends to be relatively long.
There is for the client reasonable certainty on construction costs, because a contract figure is usually known at the outset, although this may need to be adjusted later, as provided for in the contract. Although making design decisions before work has commenced may appear to bring a measure of inflexibility, changes or variations are possible during construction of the work, usually at a price in terms of direct and related costs and extra time. Administrative matters relating to valuations and payments are in the hands of the client's consultants.
Completion within the contract period is an obligation, although the contract administrator may need to revise the date for completion to take account of delays due to reasons listed in the contract. Speculative risks are balanced as between the parties, more in the client's favour on a lump sum contract , but less so with a measurement contract.
The traditional lump sum approach in terms of cost, design and quality is a relatively low risk procurement option for the client, but the time needed for the project overall is likely to be relatively longer than that of other procurement methods. Design and build procurement 11 A method where the contractor is responsible for undertaking both the design and the construction of the work in return for a lump sum price.
There are variants on this option depending on the degree to which initial design is included in the client's requirements. Appointment of a contractor is often by two stage tendering, thus keeping a competitive element, but not expecting every tenderer to produce full proposals. Adequate time must be allowed for the client's requirements to be prepared to the appropriate level, and professional consultants will usually be required.
The contractor must be given adequate time to prepare his proposals, together with an analysis of his tender figure. It should also be remembered that evaluating tenders for design and build may be difficult, because design proposals need to be balanced against price, and it is vital to check that the proposals satisfy the client's requirements. The client has control over the design element included as part of his requirements, but, once the contract is let, has no direct control over the development of the contractor's detail design.
