Ringway/Eurovia has always championed partnership and joint working with clients, and we approach our supply chain in the same way. We appreciate that our partners can add value through early contractor involvement, design innovations, and by enhancing (rather than just maintaining) highway assets and their environment.
Our Supply Chain Executive, which directs Ringway/Eurovia’s procurement strategy and policies, also promotes innovation and collaboration with members of the supply chain. They are invited to present new ideas, debate custom and practice, and discuss other ways of enhancing our offering to clients.
We welcome frank feedback on our purchasing processes and practices, and introduced a confidential questionnaire – which is facilitated by an independent organisation – to capture it.
In 2010, we are creating a new Supply Chain Forum with the specific aim of capturing and sharing such innovation.
We organise a programme of events for sharing good practice and discussing new ways to meet the challenges facing our clients. These include regular workshops, industry days, and conferences on innovation or procurement.
Ringway/Eurovia, our clients and suppliers and service providers reap mutual benefits from these and other collaborations, including:
Ringway Jacobs and their client Transport for London have project managed a brand new scheme, being rolled out across London.
