Project Based Sourcing and Procurement

Procurement/Sourcing of Design Professionals, Contractors, and Suppliers of General and Specific Equipment

At this stage, the concept design and general briefs on mechanical, electrical, structural and HVAC should be complete and therefore a local Chinese design institute can be sourced and design work commenced. Design work to include preliminary and Detailed Design.

Sourcing of Qualified Design Institute

  • An evaluation of known design institutes with qualifications to work in the designated location (site location) will be carried out with specific emphasis on establishing the ability of the key trade designers in the various institutes
  • From the pre-qualification, a “Request for Proposal” (RFP) will be issued to the qualified designers
  • Upon receipt of the proposals from the designers, a review and comparison will be drawn up with recommendations on who would be the best partner for the Client
  • Design contract and fees to be reviewed
  • Negotiation on contract terms and fees to be done in conjunction with Clients legal counsel, once in agreement, contract to be signed to allow the design to commence.

Sourcing of Qualified Contractors

  • An evaluation of known international and local construction companies with the suitable construction licenses to carry out the works will be carried out. Said pre-qualification to be reviewed by the Client and a decision on the number of companies requested to submit a tender will be made.

  • Supplier qualification and pricing will be supplied based on the equipment specified and or nominated by the Client
  • Contract negotiation with Client input will be undertaken and contracts locked in place
  • The supply and delivery periods for all equipment needs to be closely monitored to ensure a seamless transition from the supply through to the installation within the facility
  • Contract payments and cost control to be monitored through ongoing equipment supply process.
