Whereas, traditionally, suppliers responded to the clients brief, many modern methods of procurement put much greater responsibility on the supply side for selecting and managing the procurement process. This can be seen at the procurement strategy level (eg. PFI) and also at the procurement route level (eg. Design & Build).
In such situations, the best practice supplier can work closely with the client to make informed decisions which are highly beneficial to all parties. Best Practice is very much linked to open-ness over risks and savings that might be associated with specific procurement options – something that is doubly important when working with less experienced clients.
