The Major Works 19 Portal from The London Construction Programme has been built with communication and compliance at its core. From the clients perspective, it presents significant opportunities to bring efficiency to the procurement process, taking pressure away from internal resource. Having been developed with input from both client side and contractor side organisations, it provides the opportunity for greater communication and collaboration, a theme that is becoming more and more important particularly in the current market conditions.

This was the first time using the LCP platform, and it was easy to use and navigate around. The team were very helpful around assisting in setting up and running through the process for using the system. We received good engagement from suppliers for the Lot which we were using. Key features of the system which I liked was the automatic ranking of scores and ease of document upload.

Working for a busy Estates and FM team as part of Kew, the DPS has enabled us to speed up the procurement process. Putting in place a more efficient and effective procurement system. It allows Kew as a public organisation to go to the market and find contractors who have the specialist knowledge and experience Kew requires, ensuring that contractors have the necessary qualifications from the onset to work with Kew.

The excellent induction enabled us to implement a strategy utilising the DPS. Throughout the tender period and post tender review, the LCP were able to steer the process to a compliant conclusion. The objectives of the procurement process were met within an exceptionally short time period to the advantage of the council and the project.

The LCP DPS was an easy to use online portal that enabled us to successfully undertake our procurement exercise. The LCP solution was user friendly and allowed us to retain control over the end-to-end procurement process.

The DPS enables the procurement process to be straightforward and the system is effective and user friendly. Haringey LCP are always ready to help and offer solutions to our questions. They also have good knowledge of both procurement and the DPS portal and can therefore provide effective solutions to ensure the DPS meets the complexities of individual tenders.
