Strategic Sourcing Guide to Lifeboat Station Construction Services Procurement

Overview

Business practices within Lifeboat Station Construction Services market are heavily influenced by changing trends across the category as well as within the broader Construction Service Providers market. Periods of macroeconomic uncertainty and increasing stringency of immigration laws are key contributors to the workforce shortage in the market. Domestic workers in developed countries often choose to pursue higher education and less cyclical employment opportunities while foreign workers return to their home countries due to tough immigration laws and economic conditions. Consequently, suppliers have had to increase labor wages to attract skilled and unskilled labor, which has increased their costs and forced them to increase their pricing.

Over the years, regional boundaries have blurred as suppliers foray into different continents, increase their capital expenditure and spend on cross-border M&A initiatives. The deployment of geographic diversification strategies through such consolidation initiatives has enabled the large suppliers to improve their performance and expand their business footprint.

Suppliers across the value chain are increasing their investments in technologies and incorporating systems integrated with IoT, AI, Big data, and data analytics to generate efficiencies and better serve the evolving demand patterns of buyers. This is expected to impact the cost structure of suppliers in the short-term but will help bring down the costs in longer run as suppliers recover the costs of current investment cycles.

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

Lifeboat Station Construction Services Procurement Best Practices

Sometimes, procurement functions are unable to timely alter their practices while responding to market conditions. Industry experts acknowledge that periodically reviewing procurement best practices and adopting learnings from across procurement categories can help procurement teams respond to market needs in a more agile way. This report combines our experience of other categories with Lifeboat Station Construction Services procurement insights and hand picks best practices that can work for category managers delving in this market.

For example, Buyers should prefer working with suppliers who can bring in specialized solutions for their specific industries to ensure comprehensive delivery of construction related services to buyers.

Large firms should prefer to engage in long-term contracts with a preferred set of suppliers that can provide integrated solutions for all scales of projects (small, mid-sized, or large). Partnerships with preferred service providers lead to category-level innovations and enable buyers to avail customized services.

Service providers may outsource certain aspects of the project if they lack the required expertise or to expedite the project progress. If the subcontractor is not covered by a reliable liability insurance or does not abide by the same terms and conditions that were laid down for the main contractors, then it can hinder the main contractor's ability to perform its services. It may also entangle the buyers in legal complications and negative publicity.

Risks in Lifeboat Station Construction Services procurement

  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
  • 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
