Strategic Sourcing Guide to Lightning-Conductor Installation Services Procurement

Overview

Construction Service Providers market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Lightning-Conductor Installation Services procurement and the cost they have to incur. Construction activities and manufacturing of construction supplies are known to be a large source of emissions across the world. Regulatory and social pressures to keep emissions in check have transformed the way construction industry operates. Sustainable practices have penetrated the traditional business processes. There is an increasing demand for green buildings, low carbon concretes and other low emission construction aggregates and renewable energy solutions. All these factors are contributing to a significant change in the procurement standards and practices within the category.

To attract investment and drive long-term value, suppliers are building unique business models and implementing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives and stakeholder engagement programs. Such strategic initiatives are pivotal to acquire a social license to operate, generate consumer awareness, and have easy access to input commodities.

Fluctuation in prices of construction materials has made it difficult for project contractors to maintain a steady cost projection on construction projects. Also, the risks associated with project cost overruns are contributing to project delays and abandonment. Procurement functions are more careful while drawing up supplier contracts and insulating their projects from price uncertainties to the extent possible on negotiation tables.

Lightning-Conductor Installation 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 Lightning-Conductor Installation Services. To help quick decision making, this report advises on several procurement best practices that have worked well for category managers.

For example, Buyers must have a clear understanding of the sub-contracting policies of suppliers. Suppliers must be evaluated on factors such as price, quality, and regulatory compliance of their subcontractors before they are selected.

Buyers should engage with service providers that offer a wide portfolio and can act as a one-stop solution provider for multifaceted requirements of projects. This enables buyers to save significant costs and increases their spend visibility.

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 Lightning-Conductor Installation Services procurement

Lightning-Conductor Installation Services procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Lightning-Conductor Installation Services procurement. Some examples include:


  • 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
  • The unavailability of sophisticated project execution tools and systems can lead to improper estimations of costs, forecasts, and scheduling. Lack of such tools and capabilities to deal with a large amount of data can have an adverse impact on the execution of projects, thereby leading to high project costs
  • Procurement without consulting the actual users of Lightning-Conductor Installation Services may result in a mismatch in expectations of the buyer's internal stakeholders versus the actual contract executed
