Hi, need to submit a 1750 words paper on the topic Project Management Plan. The procurement route refers to the complex relationships formed between clients, project management consultants, contractors, and construction managers, to enable a building/ construction project to succeed.
In identifying the most suitable procurement route for the project-the construction of a greenway route, the client’s priorities were analyzed and compared to the available routes.
The client’s priorities and demands guide the procurement route selection. The route selected must be able to satisfy entirely the most important of the client’s requirements while allowing for ease of control, flexibility without compromising on quality.
The client is much interested in the control of the project. This insinuates that he would like to have a say in the major decisions during the construction phase. During the said time, the client wishes to be able to make changes and have them implemented without interfering with the progress of the entire construction, taking into account the cost and time plan. The chosen route does not prioritize time, risk, and accountability as required by the client. This shall be mitigated by other methods to be adopted during the construction and implementation phase. Cost and responsibility are of medium necessity to the client. Monetary value has to be considered because the project is to be funded by the public sector, therefore financial accountability shall be important. The cost estimates should be as precise as possible.
The client then considers quality as a priority as well. The quality of the final design, and the quality of the entire project will lead to the success of the construction and will avoid time lags, during construction. The main objective of the project- having people cycle and pedestrians use the route is the central responsibility and integral part of the project. Quality is thus to be adhered to without compromise.
In this section, an analysis of selected procurement routes is done. The design and built contracting management and the justification of the selected final procurement route based on the client’s needs. .
