The Defence Construction Canada Comox Procurement Team is among seven public owners recognized by the BC Construction Association for excellence in procurement this year — a first for the industry.
Procuring construction services in the public sector is a specialized practice requiring unique experience, knowledge and skill. With contractors in demand, resources at a premium and timelines tight—now more than ever procurement professionals hold the master key to project delivery.
According to the BCCA, which monitors and analyzes project information in the BidCentral construction marketplace, it was time to recognize procurement excellence in the public-sector arena.
“Standing out for procurement professionalism amid the hundreds of public projects underway in B.C. is a significant achievement.” says Chris Atchison, rresident of BCCA. “Congratulations to those owners from all the regions of our province, who shine a light for others in our booming industry.”
