Strategic Sourcing Guide to Level Crossing Construction Services Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Level Crossing Construction Services market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Technical Services market. Many suppliers are investing in automation technologies such as AI, robotics, machine learning and big data to optimize their business operations and offer new services to their customers. However, a part of this investment is also passed to buyers in the form of high prices being charged for value added services.

Talent pools available to suppliers of Level Crossing Construction Services are gradually getting costlier, impacting their OPEX. Suppliers are compelled to change their pricing structure and pass on some of this cost increase to their customers.

Suppliers are increasingly offering a 'bundle' of services which is marketed as a cost saving option. The bundled offering often includes services that are not required by the buyer or are charged at a much higher rate than an A la carte option with another supplier.

As a result, category managers need to closely monitor the Level Crossing Construction Services procurement trends and identify changes required in their procurement environment for the category.

Level Crossing Construction Services Procurement Best Practices

It has become imperative for category managers to remain as agile as possible in terms of their procurement practices. However, it is not always easy to quickly spot and implement alternative practices in a category like Level Crossing Construction Services. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Buyers should set a baseline against which the performance of suppliers can be benchmarked along with setting measurable/quantifiable KPIs. Defined KPIs provides suppliers with clarity on the scope. Besides setting standards for operations, pricing, and performance, KPIs must provide tangible goals in terms of the quality of solutions.

Buyers should engage with service providers that provide AFA in their pricing as negotiating on an hourly basis can increase the procurement cost of buyers due to overruns within lawsuits. AFA also provides buyers with cost predictability, certainty, and transparency.

Category managers must ensure that they have clearly identified and listed down potential negotiation levers to maximize the value of their category spend before entering into contract-related discussions with service providers. Common negotiation levers to maximize value include deadlines, terms related to payments, (including fees, expenses, and payment timelines) and assistance required from the buyer's organization.

Risks in Level Crossing Construction Services procurement

Level Crossing Construction Services procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Level Crossing Construction Services procurement. Some examples include:


  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Level Crossing Construction Services
  • Service providers are subject to E&O claims, due to the failure to correctly offer professional services as agreed in the contract. If such claims made by the client are found to be true, then they can result in financial penalties
  • Pricing terms in the contract could prove to be inadequate to safeguard the buyer from impact of a sudden increase in supplier's cost, often arising from a lack of clarity on scope of products or services to be delivered
