Normally, client forms a team for each package.
The focal point for each package is the package engineer who may seek assistance from other engineering disciplines such as electrical, process, mechanical, material, welding, NDE and coating as and when needed.
The package engineer is supported by ‘’procurement’’ department (buyer) and ‘’Quality’’ Department (Quality Engineer or supplier quality surveillance (SQS)) as permanent team members.
The buyer identifies potential manufacturer/supplier/vendor or choose from the approved vendor list (AVL).
The vendors from AVL are those who have been screened before and short listed and approved or vendors who have previously worked for the client and their performance were satisfactory.
Pre-bid documents is compiled by the buyer and reviewed by the package and quality engineers.
