    Assignment brief and task
    details:
    Task
    Modern approaches to procurement are expected to consider
    wider client and stakeholder values. Conventional procurement
    approaches have been consistently criticised for continuing to
    focus the competitive element, almost solely on the determination
    of an initial price for a given design. Both public and private sector
    clients have sought to introduce approaches that focus
    competition not only on economic but also, wider social and
    environmental outcomes. This has resulted in a range of
    3
    alternative, more strategic approaches to procurement to be
    proposed.
    Within this context, you are tasked to do a critical review of
    attempts at building wider values into the procurement process.
    The focus should be on what is meant by value.
    Secondly you should explain and synthesise the current advocated
    strategic approaches to procurement (including for example the
    guidance of the Infrastructure Procurement Route-map and the
    wide array of Framework Arrangements, available in the marketplace).
    Finally, you should also discuss in detail how firms in the
    construction industry could be considering how their current
    business model can help them address the changing procurement
    approaches, and whether they need to change their business
    model to capitalize on these changes. You are encouraged to
    discuss cases and real project examples in building your arguments.
