Construction

CIPS works with global organisations in the construction sector to build procurement skills, ensure effective supply assurance and compliance, and accelerate performance. We help them to form the beneficial partnerships with suppliers that are so crucial to protect against market volatility. Find out more below, or contact us.

Overview

With procurement costs often accounting for as much as 60% of project budgets, and the emergence of large public-private partnerships, it is small wonder that in the construction sector the focus on procurement and its link to performance and profit margin is increasing.

Construction companies must develop procurement skills and work effectively with suppliers, managing and sharing risk and protecting against market volatility.

CIPS is working extensively across this sector, including organisations such as SkanskaArup, Carillion and Aspire Defence, has also been working with us and recently achieved the CIPS Corporate Ethical Mark.
