Adaptable Asset Management

Procurement

PROCUREMENT is the process of acquiring goods, works and services from both third parties and in-house providers in order to manage our property portfolio in a compliant and cost efficient manner.

The process spans the whole life cycle from identification of need through to the end of a service contract or the end of the useful life of an asset. It involves specifying the services required, administering a tender process, evaluation of submissions and award of contracts/contract frameworks, as well as ongoing supplier management.

PROCUREMENT OBJECTIVES

Mainstay’s intention is to procure goods, works and services that are:

  • Fit for purpose –What is procured should be of appropriate quality for its purpose
  • At optimal lifetime cost –When what is procured has a significant lifetime, it is the total cost of using and maintaining it for that lifetime and its disposal which should be the determinant, not just the initial cost.
  • Use processes which are economic, efficient and effective –Procurement should be undertaken following procedures and processes in the procurement code.
  • Conform to Mainstay’s business plan and relevant initiatives, policies and strategies –Procurement is seen to have an increasing significance in the provision of cost effective and efficient services. Our procurement activities should reduce core costs so that we can deliver better value for money to our customers, and at the same time contribute to the success of the business.

Mainstay has:

  • A documented procurement code
  • An online supplier register
  • Standard quotation, tender and contract documentation to ensure a professional and consistent approach, and
  • Procurement professionals available to provide advice and guidance.
