The workshop is intended for professionals that deal with project and tender responsibilities including procurement and contract management. The number of participants from VD is expected to total 20 to 25, and where we get good opportunity to discuss the approach.
More details on the event’s program will be sent later.
Professor Kashiwagi introduced BVP for more than 23 years ago, 1850+ tests, 95% client satisfaction, tested in 7 countries and the system is now widespread in the US and is increasingly widespread in Europe, including in countries such as the Netherlands and Finland.
Rijkswaterstaat adopted the system for almost 10 years ago and has proven successful experience in terms of better quality for the same or lower prices and lower transaction costs by tendering.
Globalization has brought more attention to optimization of deliveries and service. In today’s economy there is no room for waist.
As processes become more effective, the use of traditional management and control methods is gradually replaced by the use and exploitation of expert knowledge.
BVP is designed to minimize project risks by identifying and taking advantage of the contractor’s true expert knowledge.
The approach is a method of identifying the right expertise from suppliers without the public client necessarily being an expert in the specific field of work. BVP provides tools to minimize the risks that the supplier has no control over, and also allows to minimize the need for client management and control of the services and/or system that the supplier shall deliver.
