Black & White have many years of experience in procuring various contracts, services and goods on behalf of financial, real estate and technology firms to ensure their offices are effectively run and maintained. Our belief is that it’s healthy to properly tender and benchmark all contracts no matter the size or service, to ensure cost-effectiveness and quality.
We therefore offer services to support your company through these processes, or to simply review existing procurement procedures, before recommending or implementing improved methods.
In addition, many firms don’t risk-assess their suppliers, let alone ask for things such as insurance documentation or method statements when it comes to manual labour or other critical work carried out on site.
We will work with you to tender for your project, services or products. We can be as involved as you require, from drafting the tender document and objectives for your review and approval and introducing recommended partner suppliers, to actively hosting or attending tender-related meetings.
Black & White can also carry out benchmarking exercises and review your existing supply base, to ensure that you are receiving the best possible service and supply at the right market cost. We will:
- Carry out contract and procurement reviews looking at your end to end processes.
- Implement compliance and risk checks in relation to new suppliers or contractors.
- Introduce and refer recommended partner providers, so you can effectively tender your products and services, or work with your existing PSL (preferred supplier list) to review services and re-negotiate as required following a market benchmarking exercise.
- For tendering and benchmarking exercises, we work on a no-fee basis unless a saving is made. Please contact us to discuss your requirement further and following an initial free consultation we can confirm the most suitable approach.
