Procurement

Infrastructure projects are continuing to grow in both size and complexity. Costs are increasing, timeframes tightening, and contractors and supply chains are consolidating and globalising. Procurement needs to evolve in order to position the project and its stakeholders for success.

Extensive industry experience

Leading edge of procurement

At E3 Advisory, our people are at the leading edge of procurement; from introducing alliances into public infrastructure to using artificial intelligence to aid the development of project documentation. We have developed relationships across the globe and across industries.

We use these relationships to identify new technologies, new processes, and new techniques, testing these within the infrastructure environment and constantly evolving our approach to procurement.

Simple and Effective Processes

Data rich digital environments

Our next-generation procurement approach maximises the benefits of collaboration, utilises the adoption of data rich digital environments, and runs compliance and control in the background to ensure participants remain focussed on outcomes and not process.

Our team has the ability to draw on our vast institutional knowledge and library of commercial and risk models, contract types and project costings to ensure that our clients are well prepared and can differentiate between real market issues and contractors’ negotiating positions.
