Procurement

Almost all organisations need to procure high value services, yet most companies don’t have the time or in-house expertise to do this effectively.  Often this leads to the tender exercise being rushed, or worse – open to external scrutiny.

 

Vixus has a team of CIPS qualified consultants who specialise in facilities management and indirect spend procurement.  Our clients span a range of industries from landlord/managing agent, corporate occupier, arts & culture and shopping centres.

 

We are also vastly experienced in managing public sector procurement exercises, having worked with local authorities, PFI contracts and government bodies.

 

In short, Vixus takes the hassle of procurement away from your team.  As experts in our field, we can demonstrate that best value has been obtained through a tender process that is fully transparent and auditable.

Procurement services

Our procurement services span the lifecycle of your contract, providing you with the flexibility of utilising the services that you need most.

  • Management of the procurement process (end to end)
  • Prequalification and supplier vetting
  • Tender evaluation (financial and technical/quality) and management of tender presentations
  • Preparation of contract documents, including specification, SLA and KPIs
  • Contract negotiation and price benchmarking against industry standards
  • Supply chain rationalisation
  • Mobilisation support

Whether your core objective is cost savings, service/quality improvements, evidence of a transparent tender process, or a combination of all three – your Vixus consultant will ensure that we deliver against these. 

Experienced procurement team

We pride ourselves on delivering projects on time and on budget. Our procurement process has been proven to stand up to external audit scrutiny, whilst also being tailored to the specific requirements of each of our clients.

Whilst cost reduction is not always the primary driver for a procurement exercise, the savings and improvements that we achieve will exceed the cost of our support.

What our clients and suppliers say…

Darien has provided supply chain rationalisation and mobilisation management services to Tideway throughout the past year. Despite several unforeseen challenges, Darien’s commitment to delivering practical solutions whilst maintaining good value for Tideway has been of a high standard. A professional, transparent process undertaken with integrity and a willingness to provide additional support whenever we need it.

We have found a consultant who really has worked hard to understand our business and the results demonstrate this. Tony Bones

Managing Director, Tideway Property Managers

We recently took part in a tender process managed and delivered by Vixus for a major property management company.  Although we were unsuccessful with our tender submission we found the whole process professionally managed and the documentation provided clear and concise. A tender timetable was provided by Vixus at the tender release and they provided feedback on Q&A submitted against the tender process.

The whole exercise was professional throughout and was controlled and managed effectively, from the initial site survey, through to submission, presentation and finally award.

I would recommend Darien and the team to any potential client looking for a consultant to use who wishes to receive a fully transparent process, scored throughout and who will provide a tender appointment award based upon the whole engagement. Brian Venton
