Types of procurement
In the construction industry, the responsibility of a contractor is mostly limited only to building components. All the design works and contract management are performed by the consultant or an engineer. This is the most basic type of procurement process and has established parameters for assessing the value for money. However, the design costs involved and risks associated are a few of the main disadvantages of this approach.

In management contracting, consultants and specialized contractors become a participant. The contractor manages the project whereas specialized contractors undertake the real build aspect in their specialized field. In this type of procurement, finance and operations are carried out by the client when there are possibilities to identify projects in packages.

Joint venture or partnering
Often, conflicts between parties lead to major problems in the construction contract’s SLAs. With joint ventures or partnering, companies can easily overcome such barriers. However, they need to establish a working environment based on trust, mutual objectives, teamwork, and sharing risks and rewards. In joint ventures, the success of projects largely depends on a memorandum of understanding between the parties involved.
