With in-depth knowledge of the complex procurement legislation and extensive experience in the market, we can advise on the most appropriate procurement procedure and conditions of contract.
Together with our client, we define the procurement and contracting strategy in which we evaluate the best form of collaboration, the scope of the work, the controls, and the appropriate contract form and management.

There are a great many steps and phases between initial concept to final delivery of a project. Throughout this time, many decisions will have to be made on finance, resource planning, process, design, contracts and risk management.
Our approach to value engineering will ensure that we quickly identify and remove any unnecessary costs, and continue to optimise function and quality at the same time. The Royal HaskoningDHV value engineering model relies on strong team collaboration, constant checking and early market input, to ensure that you get the best value throughout the project.
CAPEX, OPEX & life cycle estimating

We use pre-defined certification procedures to authorise payments to contractors and as a basis for monitoring cash flow, and continue these procedures right up to the final payment certificate, ensuring that your project reaches a successful conclusion.
