About the book

Global Contract Logistics looks at what a contracting professional should be doing. The scope begins well before the award of a contract and doesn't end until the benefits of the acquisition have been realised, long after the deliverables arrive in a box on a loading dock. The book tackles the growing complexity of contracting in a technologically accelerating world. The author looks at the common errors and disappointments that have been experienced in past procurement undertakings. The ten phases of a successful acquisition are examined in depth.

Global Contract Logistics
includes real-life examples drawn from the Ministry of Defence, Heathrow Airport, the Olympics Authority, Cross Rail, the Institute of Civil Engineers, the U.S. Defence Acquisition University, the Defence Academy in Swindon, shipbuilders and construction managers including those involved in building nuclear power plants.
