Venue: 2019 AACE International Conference & Expo, June 16-19, 2019, New Orleans, LA, USA

Abstract: Almost all aspects of a portfolio of projects are procured or contracted to third party entities. While in some circumstances, organizations may develop a project-by-project supply chain management plan that supports the delivery of their single project(s), not many organizations take into consideration the requirements of a portfolio or program strategic supply chain approach. With this said, the authors of this paper provides some recommendations for the purpose of defining and implementing a methodology supporting, and therefore improving, portfolio supply chain development and implementation.

Specifically, this article will provide readers with:

  • An understanding of the approaches to supply chain management requirements for the different type of project delivery models, master service agreements and task order for expedience, and bulk purchasing agreements for price reduction strategies, and finally, standardization that support the effective and efficient delivery of the portfolio.
  • Real-time results of implementing a supply chain methodology that demonstrates a reduction in time to market as well as price reductions to overall portfolios.
  • A review of the similarities and differences of the needs and methodologies of private sector projects and public works.
