Procurement strategy


Undertaking a procurement process in accordance with procurement regulations and directives can be a timely and costly. We advise on the preparation of a procurement strategy in advance of commencing the procurement process, which will inform the process and enable the contracting authority to manage time and costs more efficiently and effectively.

We work closely with our clients to formalise their procurement strategies by considering all relevant factors including:

  • The services and/or works to be procured;
  • Reasons for undertaking the procurement process, for example, an existing contract is due to expire;
  • Timescales for concluding the procurement process.
  • Proposed duration of the contract.
  • Estimated competition/interest in the contract;
  • Appropriate procurement procedure to utilise.

Our procurement team advise on early engagement by market testing and assist our clients by producing all necessary documentation and ensure that the market testing process is legally compliant, transparent and does not distort competition.
