Major Projects & Capital Works Procurement

Successfully delivering complex major procurement projects

Major infrastructure projects and capital works programs can be challenging and need to balance how to best manage project risk, budget and timeline while achieving long-term economic, social and environmental benefits that may be realised over several decades.

Our experienced team have identified five important practices fundamental in delivering value for money through procurement:

  • Fitness for Purpose – selecting preferred procurement approach based on project specifics
  • Cost Management – selecting and developing preferred commercial structures based on project specifics
  • Risk Management – appropriate allocation of risk to maintain value for money
  • On-time Delivery – getting the fundamentals of project management, governance, reporting and delivery established and right
  • Social and Economic Benefit – proactive approach to social outcomes and community engagement.

Key principles that deliver effective & efficient capital delivery programs:

  • Program Strategy and Planning
  • Process, Systems and Governance
  • People Capability
  • Supplier and Market Development
  • Performance and Risk Management
  • Continuous Improvement

How we can support your Capital Works program

Organisations that are delivering capital works programs face several challenges — whether they are taking on a handful of small and medium-size projects; a portfolio of diverse projects.
