White Paper

Shifting Sands in the Economy and International Procurement Market

27 March 2009
Mayer Brown White Paper
Recent economic events around the world have caused the delay or cancelling of many major infrastructure projects which, in turn, has led to a marked change in the relative bargaining positions of contractors and employers. This sea-change comes on the back of the most favourable suppliers’ market for many years, during which time suppliers and contractors strongly influenced the manner in which major projects were procured, leading to contractors adopting very risk adverse positions and, inevitably, an increase in the premiums that employers had to pay for engineering and construction services.
