Sample text

Risk and responsibility are often passed on by main contractors to subcontractors and at this point the client’s visibility of the management of the risk disappears, their ability to influence diminishes and the strategic goals are lost. Boyd and Chinyio (2006) distinguish the strategic aims of organisations in the private and public sectors. While firms in the private sector are concerned to achieve a number of priorities, including profits, business efficiency, productivity and market position, the strategic aims of public-sector organisations focus on accountability, transparency, social involvement, equity, employee welfare and effective service.

A private-sector perspective of supply chains is given by Rimmer (2009), who defines the management of the supply chain as the ‘management of upstream and downstream relationships with clients and suppliers to achieve greater project value at less cost’ (Rimmer, p. 153). He defines value and cost from the client’s point of view. Value is seen as any aspect of a project of importance to the client, while cost is the total amount paid by the client, including interest charges (Rimmer, pp. 138–9). To Rimmer the purpose of supply chain management (SCM) includes the delivery of value, the elimination of waste and the measurement of performance.

The supply chain simply does not possess the strategic means or ability to control the demand that creates opportunities to take the lead, owing to both its fragmentation and its market-orientated outsourcing methods. Necessary and timely information is not always forthcoming and, when it is, it is not necessarily pooled in a process of shared values and common interest. Hagan, Bower and Smith (2011) recognised that within any projectbased firm, projects can be interrelated in terms of their use of resources.
