Procurement

Quality  goods and services, at the right time, at the lowest cost, produced and delivered safely. That sums up Bechtel's approach to procurement, and we have the experience, the tools, and the know-how to make it work. By providing integrated, reliable, and cost-efficient supply chain management services, we help ensure the success of projects large and small.
Our global capabilities include:

  • A resource pool of mobile professionals—experts in their fields—located in major economic and industrial centers of the world.
  • Knowledge of local laws, markets, customs, and procurement practices that makes it easier to source from local suppliers.
  • Long-term, senior-level relationships with key manufacturing and contractor organizations
  • State-of-the-art tools such as a Web-based supplier portal for identifying low-cost, reliable suppliers, and the ability to reduce costs by purchasing in large volumes.
  • Using online reverse  auctions to obtain goods and services at the lowest possible cost.

Small, Small Disadvantaged, and Women-Owned Small Business (United States)

Bechtel is committed to providing meaningful roles for small businesses on our government and commercial contracts. The term “small business” includes small disadvantaged businesses, woman-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service disabled veteran-owned small business, and HUBZone small businesses. This also includes Minority Business Enterprises and Woman Business Enterprises. At Bechtel, we recognize the value a diverse supply chain system brings to our business.

Although we are structured around global business units that serve a broad spectrum of industries, we all share a common supplier diversity goal: to maximize opportunities for small businesses.

Our record of performance in subcontracting to these small businesses reflects our company's values and our efforts to foster their development and participation in our projects. We have extensive experience in qualifying and contracting with these businesses in technical areas such as engineering, construction, and environmental remediation.
