A New Dawn For New Zealand




We are currently experiencing a sudden surge in quality assurance (QA) systems in New Zealand. This is somewhat hard to fathom as the traditional kiwi attitude has been “she’ll be right” and “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. And, of course the traditional “binder twine and # 8 wire” mentality.



Nine Methods Of Tendering

Using a combination of several of the following methods, it is possible to gain extreme accuracy - perhaps within 2% of what the Principal expects.
Time, tonnes and kilometres (most primitive method)
Contractors Blue Book
Competitive Pricing (CCP)
Weighted attributed
Brook’s Law – two envelope method
Target pricing range
Transit NZ pre-qualification
Contingent sum
Liquidated damages




Having your business monitored for quality assurance standards will not only 99% bullet proof you from OSH but will also provide you with tangible business growth and profit benefits.


We can easily give examples of companies that have benefited from the adoption of quality assurance accreditation and certification.


High quality systems can substantially reduce your wastage and improve company profits by up to 15%. Quality assurance can help you get business that you cannot otherwise get without certification. Most Local Governments and Government Departments and major Corporations now require quality assurance for civil works, and purchase of services.




Profit Margins Allocated For Quality Assurance



This is the hottest topic of all. How could there possibly be a profit margin for quality assurance? You might well say “this simply cannot be the case! You are lying! Don’t be so foolish, there is no more profit than 5% in our work, don’t tell me otherwise as I cannot believe you”. We are now going to tell you that we are sorry but you simply do not understand. We will further tell you that the margins can be 5%, 10%, 20% or even 50% depending on the critical nature of the work. Since you do not want to hear any of that, we will need to explain how this money is actually paid out.


Preferred Supplier Status



Why is it important? Firstly, it is not commonly known and even less understood. It is a status given to a small number of suppliers to large organizations in Government, Local Government and the private sector. Secondly, the average business does not believe in preferred supplier status because they have “their own market” and “their own customers”. They “fly on the seat of their pants” continuing to do what they have done for several years, without wondering if they might be able to do it better.
