Contract & Commercial Management

The outcomes of a procurement strategy are evident in the management and delivery of the supply chain.  The supply chain should be continuously measured and reviewed to ensure it is achieving an organisation’s objectives.

Utilising Service Level Agreements (“SLAs”), Key Performance Indicators (“KPIs”) and Performance Measurement Systems (“PMS”) are some of the tools that can be utilised to manage and measure compliance and performance; as are periodic independent reviews that often provide a truly autonomous and fresh look at compliance, performance and potential innovation.  Global Real Estate can provide technical advice in each of these areas.
