Our procurement services will ensure timely and complete delivery of all project materials and services, per specification and within allotted budgets.
Led by an industry certified Purchasing Manager, our Project Procurement Team (PPT) will provide a complete package of supply-chain management tools and services, fully conforming to our client’s policies, procedures and approval matrix requirements. Project confidentiality will be maintained at all times and all services rendered will be in strict compliance with our client’s business conduct and ethics practice and other corporate policies. Due diligence will be practiced throughout the project to ensure all Procurement functions strictly adhere to federal, state and local rules and regulations. In addition, the project team will perform all rendered services using standard MEI procedures, which incorporate best practices recommended by the Institute for Supply Management (ISM).
