The South East Best Practice Club are pleased to present their next breakfast event with Dr Jonathan Gosling, Senior Lecturer in Supply Chain Management, Cardiff Business School. Procurement choices and contracting processes can affect the behaviour of different organizations right across the supply chain. This is because it establishes the underlying incentivization mechanisms, conditions and overall relational climate for a project, which then trickles down to the different levels in the supply chain. But what type of contracting approach should be adopted? And does it apply to all situations?

We embarked on a research programme over 2014-2015, funded by Highways England, and in partnership with Costain, as well as NEC, to seek answers to these questions within the context of major infrastructure schemes. This has resulted in a contracting guide for Highways England, a range of academic papers, as well as presentations to industry audiences.

Our intention is to squeeze as much insight from the above into this breakfast slot, so we envisage that, after the breakfast session, you will have a better understanding of:

the typical contractual pitfalls and issues experienced by the supply chainappropriate governance of major engineering projects, including contractual mechanisms and relational the uniqueness of the engineering solution relates to contract typesthe need for continuous improvement and review processes for contracting
