Defining procurement objectives
A clear, focused and bespoke strategy is essential for every procurement.
We listen to each client’s specific objectives and never use a standard ‘one size fits all’ procurement model.
Our bespoke procurement approach ensures that the selected supplier is a great fit for your organisation and is well positioned for years of high quality delivery, strong working relationships and excellent value for money.
We achieve this by working closely with your team to get under the skin of your aspirations.
Our Strategic Brief session takes your team and all relevant stakeholders through the process of building a comprehensive, but concise, Strategic Brief focused on your project/contract. Your objectives, commercial, contractual, quality and service criteria are critically challenged and clarified to ensure they will deliver your requirements.
The agreed Strategic Brief provides the procurement road map to select suppliers that will confidently deliver value for money and high performance.
A focused and compliant procurement process
Our experienced consultants guide, advise on and implement a fully compliant OJEU procurement process to appoint best fit suppliers for your project/contract, including:
- Delivery to agreed timescales
- Selection of the most appropriate commercial arrangement and form of contract
- Preparation of clear tender documentation, with focused qualitative questions
- Robust cost models which fit your commercial objectives
- A well balanced tender evaluation strategy
- Procurement Report on completion to provide a clear audit trail
- Mobilisation training to ensure that the relationship and performance get off to the best possible start from day one

Thank you for all your help and support with the project to appoint a new partnering contractor. With a project of this size we expected a bit of pain along the way, but actually the whole process was relatively painless!
I think we included some really good things in the tender, and there are definitely some parts of the evaluation process I would use again. We feel like we’ve got a really good outcome and have appointed a contractor who will work with us to take the organisation forward. The team are also better equipped now to be able to manage the relationship with Keepmoat.
Thank you for successfully leading us through the OJEU procurement of a £4M planned maintenance contract. We were really impressed by your knowledgeable and diligent approach and are delighted with the resulting contract.
We recently secured ERDF funds to upgrade two commercial properties and Stradia was an obvious choice to guide us through procurement of the £1.5M contract. As repeat customers we were again impressed by your professional and thoughtful approach which has carried us through several unexpected challenges.
I first worked with Nigel and Sharron when investigating the procurement process with the aim of reducing costs and risks to the States of Jersey in delivering public sector construction projects. They made complex concepts such as “partnering” and “open book” easy to understand and provided high quality information, professionally delivered with a friendly, practical approach. Nigel and Sharron proved to be exceptional facilitators, successfully bringing together a range of stakeholders including politicians, public sector professionals and private sector construction companies to share expertise. The facilitation sessions had clear aims and objectives and discussions were guided in a responsive and reflective manner. They worked hard to ensure everyone felt included and valued for their contribution. If personality and aptitude are what makes a good facilitator, the team at Stradia amply demonstrates the necessary qualities.
