Procurement Strategy & Delivery for a Design & Construct Contract

Background: This Australian Council engaged ArcBlue to support their procurement strategy and delivery of a Design and Construct contract.


Service: Advisory & Change – Infrastructure Procurement; Procurement Strategy

Infrastructure Procurement Case Study


This project identified significant risks including site location, site access, environment, community and indigenous sensitivities. ArcBlue was engaged to deliver the following project outcomes:

  • Develop the project specific procurement strategy that considered all available options including early contract engagement and design finalisation and construct
  • Lead the delivery of the procurement process and the procurement strategy – this included the development of all project procurement documentation, development of a probity plan specific to project design, construct and mobilisation challenges that were managed through early contractor engagement
  • Manage and develop the Design and Construct contract including commercial structures, performance regime and construction contract management requirements.


The preferred procurement was executed through a 2 stage EOI-RFP process with the development of specific commercial and contracting structures. This was to ensure that the project was delivered on-time and within budget whilst managing risk that was acceptable and compliant with the Local Government Procurement Act.
