Flexibility Produces Savings and Protects Schedules
Restricting a purchase to a single brand and model number is a common buying approach. It’s safe and easily communicated, but it can also limit competition, reduce access to innovation and delay construction schedules.
As an alternative, consider developing a performance spec. A good performance spec requires a thorough understanding of what the product needs to accomplish and consists of a list of required attributes. It may include a brand and model number as guidance and comparison.
A performance spec offers FOUR main advantages over standard brand and model number specifications.
1 – It encourages price competition between multiple manufacturers offering equivalent products.
2 – It embraces improvements and technological advances as they become available.
3 – It reduces the likelihood of supply line disruptions and back orders, inherent in single source specifications.
4 – It avoids the need for respecification should the originally specified brand and model number become discontinued.
