Although echelon is usually engaged to project manage and facilitate the whole procurement process, we are also happy to act as a critical friend for Organisations undertaking their own procurement.
It is critical that Client organisations fully understand the obligations placed on them under current OJEu legislation and we are able to offer guideance and best practice on all aspects of the procurement process from the scoping stage through to contract aware and mobilisation.
In our experience, areas where we can offer the most help are around the preparation of the OJEu notice, the pre-qualification questionnaire and the invitation to tender documents (including specifications, cost models and key performance indicators etc).
Having procured in excess of £2.2bn of Asset Management services, we are able to offer this service on all aspects of procurement including:-
- Responsive Repairs & Voids
- Gas Servicing & Breakdown
- Planned Maintenance Work
- Cyclical Decorating Contracts
- Service Contracts
- Grounds Maintenance
- Call Centre Procurement
Through the provision of the Critical Friend service, we are able to empower Organisations to undertake their own procurement and build a legacy for future procurement exercises within the Organisation.
