BAM Nuttall will be signing up to the Builder’s Profile from 1 June 2012, it has been announced.
The civil engineering firm will be collecting and maintaining information on its supply chain in an attempt to reduce the pre-qualification burden on subcontractors, and simplify access to information on their suppliers.
Builder’s Profile is an online service supported by the National Specialist Contractors’ Council, which represents 7000 specialists in the UK, and the Builder’s Conference. The growing list of firms signed up to the service includes MITIE Interiors, Morgan Sindall, Osborne and Wilmott Dixon.
BAM Nuttall will be contacting its supply chain partners within the next few weeks to discuss how they can submit pre-qualification information.
Sub-contractors can create basic profiles free of charge and send them directly to one contractor. If they register for the premium service, they can submit their profile to as many different contractors as they wish, cutting costs and time spent on bespoke pre-qualification forms.
BAM Nuttall procurement director Martin Paintin said the system would “not only improve our efficiencies but reduce PQQ duplication for the supply chain”.
He said: “The Builder’s Profile fits perfectly with our vendor evaluation processes and our Beyond Zero vision – working towards our philosophy of zero accidents and environmental incidents.”
NSCC and Builders’ Conference members can sign up to the Builder’s Profile for £199 + VAT. Non-members can sign up for £275 + VAT.
