Strategic Procurement & Commercial Management Practice

Elysium EPL’s Strategic Procurement and Commercial Management Practice supports our clients by developing innovative, tailored solutions to complex government and industry procurement and commercial requirements for optimal performance.

Drawing on innovation, best practice and collaboration, we take an holistic approach that considers the broader organisational context and needs, to design, administer and implement solutions that will set organisations up for success long after we are gone.

Our speciality is collaborative contracting arrangements that make the most of business relationships and those which seek to encourage and support Australian businesses into supply chains. 

We have a very deep understanding of Commonwealth procurement policy, procedures, and practical implementation of Defence end-to-end procurement process, particularly in the maritime domain. Our practice specialists are skilled at identifying the needs and strategy for achieving key requirements, and instituting a fit-for-purpose enterprise arrangement to ensure the most effective benefits are realised from the procurement - from initial strategy development to management of source selection, negotiations and support to supplier phase-in.

Elysium EPL works collaboratively with our clients and their stakeholders to understand the requirements and the benefits sought to develop a comprehensive strategy for procurement; this includes understanding the relevant supplier market.

Throughout this process we strive to apply Collaborative Working business management principles and associated relational contracting models where appropriate.
