What we offer:

We work with you, from the beginning of the procurement process to the end, to ascertain your specific procurement needs. We offer:

  • Partnering & Best Value Procurement Advice
  • Budgets & Project Cost Control
  • Client Advice
  • Tender Document Preparation

We offer advice on all types of procurement contracts. We are experienced in, and able to recommend, all types of standard contracts including: JCT, NEC3 and TPC 2005. We will work with you to ensure that you use the contract which is appropriate to your needs.
Alternatively, if you decide to go out to tender on an existing contract, we can give you advice on if the contract is still viable or should be altered.

We also offer assistance and advice with the pre-qualification of tenders, producing tender packages and managing tender activities from the early project phase right through to commissioning and hand over. We ensure that the contents of your contract correspond with UK and European Public Contract procurement rules (if applicable) and to all other legal requirements.


We are available to assist you with complying with the principals of partnering:

  • equity
  • transparency
  • mutual benefit

In order to achieve this, we produce, as an alternative to the standard measured term contract, the M3NHF Schedule of Rates with partnering contract. It covers all the standard aspects of the main schedule but, in addition, it has a full partnership framework with areas for negotiation clearly marked out. For more information, or to get a quote, please visit our partner organisation M3's website here.

In addition we also:

  • offer advice and consultancy on procuring your partnering contract.
  • carry out financial audits once you are involved in a partnership.
