Assignment brief and 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
alternative, more strategic approaches to procurement to be
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.
