- The ProCure21+ framework requires that all PSCPs provide a launch (start-up) workshop on ProCure21+ schemes/projects. The cost of providing the start-up workshop is included within the PSCPs fee percentages;
- Opening statement from the launch workshop guide:
Why have a launch workshop?
The ProCure21+ Implementation Advisors have observed that those clients that do have a workshop manage their schemes better and get a better outcome in the end. Teams that do not…… do not.
- It is also stated: The ProCure21+ Implementation Advisors have observed that those clients that do have a workshop manage their schemes better and get a better outcome in the end.
- Whilst the Guide provides the basis for initiating a joint overview of the ProCure21+ contract and its processes, it is important that those administering and undertaking the scheme appreciate the provisions and processes provided within the NEC3 Option C contract and the ProCure21+ contract templates.
The ProCure21+ contract templates for contract/works information and site information contain requirements of which all parties must be aware to ensure a successful scheme outcome. Failure to implement these requirements has been demonstrated to have serious contract and commercial consequences for both parties so all involved with a ProCure21+ scheme are advised to ensure that they:
- understand the NEC3 Option C contract provisions and processes;
- understand the provisions of the ProCure21+ NEC Option C templates and the provisions and procedures therein including the ProCure21+ Z clauses, works and site information;
- take note of all web-based ProCure21+ contract guidance;
- seek ProCure21+ clarification/advice on meanings/actions/procedures required by this contract if they are unsure;
- provide early warnings to ProCure21+ of any potential issues that may affect the performance of a scheme and therefore the ProCure21+ framework itself;
- work within the true spirit of mutual trust and co-operation.
