Companies compare different types of procurement based on parameters such as topography, logistics, weather, available technology, finance, labor availability, and services. However, they must be acquainted with the functions such as design, build, management, finance, and operation undertaken in the construction project.

Types of procurement

Traditional procurement

In the construction industry, the responsibility of a contractor is mostly limited only to building components. All the design works and contract management are performed by the consultant or an engineer. This is the most basic type of procurement process and has established parameters for assessing the value for money. However, the design costs involved and risks associated are a few of the main disadvantages of this approach.

Want to analyze how traditional procurement can help you allocate resources effectively and identify cost-savings opportunities? Reach out to our experts for specific insights.

Management contracting

In management contracting, consultants and specialized contractors become a participant. The contractor manages the project whereas specialized contractors undertake the real build aspect in their specialized field. In this type of procurement, finance and operations are carried out by the client when there are possibilities to identify projects in packages.

Joint venture or partnering

Often, conflicts between parties lead to major problems in the construction contract’s SLAs. With joint ventures or partnering, companies can easily overcome such barriers. However, they need to establish a working environment based on trust, mutual objectives, teamwork, and sharing risks and rewards. In joint ventures, the success of projects largely depends on a memorandum of understanding between the parties involved.
