At URS, our highly skilled procurement professionals help us deliver successful projects around the world by acquiring high-quality and competitively priced equipment, materials and services—when we need them, anywhere in the world.
Every year, we acquire more than a billion dollars in services, equipment, and material as part of our work for the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Our procurement system for federal government clients has been recognized by the U.S. Defense Contract Management Agency as a best practice and model for other companies to follow. We ensure compliance with applicable regulations and contract provisions, including small business/supplier diversity program requirements.
URS also provides leading-edge procurement and materials management services for a variety of clients in the oil and gas, infrastructure, industrial, and power markets, including many multinational companies. We maintain a comprehensive database of subcontractors and suppliers, and provide monthly market intelligence and timely recommendations, based on material demand, supply, and pricing trends. With global resources, an extensive international project portfolio, and heavy-haul experience, URS manages the timely delivery of material and equipment from manufacturing facilities to project sites.
We also perform prequalification of potential subcontractors to determine safety record, capability, and past performance; we prepare and administer subcontracts, and we manage change orders to improve clients’ profit margin.
