What we do

MARCAS’s primary objective is to put in place and manage competitive agreements with a panel of reputable suppliers, able to meet our customer’s core requirements.

To meet this objective, we undertake a range of activities:

  • On-going review of member’s technical and operational requirements and how well our contracts are performing, with minimum one formal review per year
  • An annual supplier business review with all key suppliers to share performance feedback, agree pricing changes and actions to improve the value from the contracts
  • An ongoing review of market developments (including technology) and alternative supplier options
  • Supplier due diligence and on-boarding including assessment of HSEQ compliance and associated storage and management of records
  • Member on-boarding including assessment of requirements and priorities
  • Price benchmarking and underlying cost driver analyses to ensure we understand our market positioning and trends
  • Execution of formal Supplier negotiations or tenders, supported by representatives from some of our members
  • Management of contract renewals or execution of new contracts with Suppliers
  • Supplier and Member communications – new agreements, organisational changes, changes in discounts and incentives
