Innovate and collaborate to achieve maximum value

Do you know how to procure more efficiently or effectively?

We help clients adopt best practice procurement, supply chain and contracting processes through a range of services to deliver commercially sustainable outcomes. Leveraging our experience and specialised knowledge, we seek to deploy agile and practical approaches that unlock potential, de-risk projects and deliver resilient outcomes for our clients no matter the problem.

Whether it’s commercial strategy, procurement, supply chain or commercial management, we understand the challenges clients face in optimising and improving operational activities across spend categories and supply chains.  We assist clients in building new operating models, establishing new supplier ecosystems, running transactions, embedding category management, rolling out collaborative contracting models and managing supply chain risk.

Our commercial advisory approach

Our approach encompasses the whole life of assets, so our clients also benefit from HKA’s expertise in building category management (common components) capability and supplier relationship management programmes.

On every assignment, our philosophy is to work in a simple, effective, and integrated way, in collaboration with your team, so that together we understand and manage risk appropriately.

HKA follows the best practice 6 Pillars model to develop the packaging, procurement, and contracting strategy for the complex transactions that we manage.

Our commercial advisory specialists have successfully completed transactions amounting to billions of dollars. In the course of this work, HKA has assembled a suite of best-practice tools to support the tendering and evaluation process while developing our market-leading approach to interactive dialogue.

Our commercial advisory team have successfully completed billions of dollars of transactions across a range of sectors, including Water, Rail, Energy, Transport, Roads, Mining, Social Infrastructure and Education.  

We use proven industry best-practice processes and tools to help clients achieve maximum value on external spend by formulating and delivering optimal commercial strategies tailored to our clients’ needs. For example, HKA has been responsible for introducing a range of international best practices in Australia, including the NEC4 form of contract, Project 13 principles and approaches, Six Pillars of Procurement and the Project Initiation Routemap.

HKA’s Commercial Advisory team achieved the CIPS Corporate Ethical Procurement and Supply certification in 2022. HKA sought to prioritise this training given the heightened risks across global supply chains and in recognition of our role in driving ethical practices across the projects we work on. As one of the few consulting companies in Australia to obtain this certification, it demonstrates the commitment HKA places on ethical procurement, sourcing and supplier management.
