Fostering relationships.

Whether it be the purchase of services, operations and capital works, the strategies and processes behind procurement can be costly to any given project. Good policy and planning is key and Think Infrastructure knows how to play this game with optimum outcomes.

Think Infrastructure and its associates specialise in procuring appropriate partners in order to arrive at successful long-term relationships that deliver results ongoing. Scoping the best capabilities, appropriate risk allocations, and reduced transaction costs, are key drivers that determine the final form of the contractual relationship on any project.

Our procurement experience extends from securing conventional facilities management using scheduled rates to sophisticated partnerships, alliance arrangements, and PPPs – attached to incentives for performance and risk and innovation reward sharing.

Basically, at Think Infrastructure we manage procurement on behalf of our clients. In particular, we can assist with councils to establish professional procurement panels in order to facilitate effective process and the maximisation of relationships.
