Civil Energy, Infrastructure, Mining & Transport Projects
Constructive Edge offers services to clients in the civil sector, much the same as in the defence sector. We see a strong Socio Economic Advancement package as a competitive advantage. We strive to provide our clients in the civil sector with a Socio Economic Advantage over their competitors. We benchmark our package of services to deliver Socio Economic Advancement to the communities and stakeholders associated with government procurement. Our services include:
- Development of an industrial cooperation strategy
- Research and identification of local supply chain opportunities
- Community socio and economic engagement strategies based on sound research generation of a community's interests
- Project proposal development and writing
- Negotiation, documentation and compliance
- Industrial cooperation project development and fulfilment
- Post contract administration
- Advisory services and consultancy
All of these will save our clients time and money, and increase their chances of a successful contract award and delivery.
Constructive Edge's experience in working with the defence sector, where offset has evolved these past 30 years, can be highly valuable to civil companies that have never had exposure to industrial cooperation through the normal course of business or do not have the in-house team available to match new expectations for detailed proposals in this discipline.
Not all industrial cooperation is linked to military sales. What is known as civil economic and social benefit can be less regulated by government procuring entities and may in cases be driven by pro-active commercial competitive motivation. It also can exist within direct agreements between parastatal companies purchasing commercial equipment from foreign suppliers on their own terms, such as in the case of commercial aircraft manufacturers.
Typical government procurements and or major equipment sales that can generate Socio Economic Advancement opportunities can include power plants and renewable energy projects, transport systems and infrastructure, large health and education projects, extractive industries, special purpose vessels and commercial aircraft.
