Halcrow’s market sector manager, Mark Baynham, commented: “This is a team effort and proves to one of our major strategic clients that Halcrow can deliver major procurement projects.”
The project includes a Halcrow-developed e-tendering system and pricing database –innovative firsts for client Transport Scotland. Saving time during tendering and consultations, these systems were deemed a major success by the client.
Our approach drastically reduces paper consumption during procurement, provides continuous access to information and a full audit trail, and significantly speeds up the tendering process.
