We take the pain of services contracts bidding, formulation, and procurement of custom-engineered equipment out of your hands.

Complex contract formulation & capital equipment procurement can be a high-stress, and time-consuming process. For these periodic requirements, let PURSUIT champion RFP/RFQ formulation, bid issue, negotiation, summary & recommendation, and contracts & purchase order formulation activities.


Focus on your core business

Engaging PURSUIT allows client to attend to core competencies (i.e. engineering, daily operations). We take charge of the entire RFP/RFQ process, from development to receipt of services & equipment.


Best practice approach

Professional scope of work/scope of supply development with client. Best negotiated price, terms & conditions, quality, and delivery achieved with strategically sourced quality bidders.

Reduce administrative burden

Maximize productivity by outsourcing. With PURSUIT’s processes and documentation, all contracts and purchase orders will be definitive and concise.   

Maximize your purchase dollar

Why hire expensive full time senior staff? Your firm may only have periodic complex supply chain requirements for an experienced supply chain professional.

Shawn was instrumental in leading all contracts and procurement activities

We were so impressed with Shawn’s efforts we brought him back to K+S Potash in 2017-2018 at the beginning of our operational phase for our master supply agreements (MSAs) initiative, which included development of internal processes, terms & conditions, contracts documents, and negotiating & awarding of these contracts. His broad-based operational and projects experience and insight was a key resource for K+S colleagues.

Shawn is an exceptional leader with vast knowledge and experience in the field of procurement and contracts.

He is a great initiator and coordinator of team activities, a team player that ensures everyone is carried along. He is also a fantastic organizer and very creative person. Shawn helped me to settle quickly in my role as a new employee as he does for all others joining our team. I highly recommend him to any team seeking a high achiever!

These are the lessons that benefit me wherever I go as procurement specialist.

Shawn trained and mentored me in becoming a Project Procurement Specialist for an EPCM firm’s clients in the mining industry. He taught me lots of valuable career skills. He provided insight into what everyone’s roles were within a project environment, how to plan your work, and communicate effectively in a multi-discipline environment.
