9780132947114: Engineer's Procurement Manual for Major Plant Equipment: A Guide to Principles and Procedures for Planning, Specif., Bidding, Evaluat., Contract Awar

It is surprising how many engineers cannot evaluate bids properly, and therefore award contracts for major equipment based solely on the lowest price received. This book provides valuable and practical “hands on” guidance on engineering procurement formation techniques, from planning to placing the contract, in the mechanical, electrical, process, and mining fields. This book is unique in that it covers both the commercial (legal and financial), and technical aspects of an engineering contract for the acquisition of major plant equipment. For plant engineers, plant owners, legal counsel, upper levels of management who approve the bid evaluation and recommendation, and equipment suppliers who bear heavy costs for bid preparation.

From the Publisher:

An indispensable guide for those responsible for the preparation of bidding and contract documents, and managing a competitive bidding process for the procurement of major (large and more complex) plant equipment installed in power, process and mining industries. Designed to effectively fill a void in available books concerned with both the technical and commercial matters needed for setting-up and executing contracts, and is the first book ever written that covers the entire contract formation process for the multidisciplinary acquisition of this equipment. The book provides comprehensive hands-on techniques and guidelines on how to perform the work from initial planning through to placing the contract in a logical and sequential step-by-step manner that is easy to read and understand. It presents the engineer with a methodology for drafting the individual technical and commercial documentation for a biding contract aimed primarily to eliminate situations which often lead to delay in project implementing, completion and cost overruns. This book is also unique in that it devotes considerable attention to standardize certain key technical and procedural matters that apply to almost all major equipment procurements thereby minimizing the preparation of ever-changing contract conditions for different contracts. The author's approach throughout this book is for precise detail and consistency and avoidance of duplication and ambiguity between documents that can create serious problems when detected during the course of the contract. This book will also prove invaluable to those who are likely to take up purchasing and project management as well as plant owners who seek the benefits of their investment. In addition, the book should be of considerable use to any company for organizing and improving their procurement procedures.

About the Author:

Robert C. Lesser is a Consulting Engineer who retired from full-time engineering in 1989. This book is the result of over thirty-five years of experience gained in various key engineering positions, mainly with international engineering, process, manufacturing, and mining companies. He had contract administration responsibilities covering a wide range of major engineering projects, as well as feasibility and cost studies, and proposal preparation. He also held senior supervisory positions for the design, construction, commissioning, start-up and operation of thermal power, petroleum, petrochemical, mineral processing, and mining complexes.
