|Strategic performance Management Process Design
|July 2020 - Jun 2021
The effectiveness of the Strategic performance Management process in influencing contract outcomes and behaviours throughout the contract term is an outcome of the initial Contract management design and implementation stage. Designing and establishing the SPM management processes in the initial contract management phase is the responsibility of individual Project Offices. K39 Consulting identified no documented process existed, that could be utilised as a guide to aid in establishing these activities, within the Defence Contract Management Landscape.
Whilst charged with designing a Contract management framework for a long-term strategic contract, K39 Consulting developed a generic guide for the management processes for Strategic Performance Measures (SPM). The SPM management process Guide utilises a Capture, Record, Assess, Consolidate and Report methodology. Also documented are the SPM management risks and mitigations, and tools to aid in facilitating the documented methodology. The tools include Questionnaire examples, capture and consolidated summary sheets, presentations and report templates.
K39 Consulting were engaged to develop and deliver a $900 million strategic contract on behalf of Explosive Material Branch. This required delivery within a significantly truncated time period due to critical schedule risks. Despite this, the K39 consultants, led by Darren Owen, formulated a solution that surpassed our expectations with the delivery of greater value for money, enhanced proficiency in the use of the Commonwealth facilities and an increase in Defence manufacturing capability and capacity. They definitely earn their reputation as Defence procurement experts.” Name, Department
