‘FREE’ Management Services
Some consultants – who are not members of the FCSI – claim to offer a ‘free’ service, where they will arrange the tendering of a contract or undertake cost reduction services at no expense to the client or even charge the winning contractor and guess who ends up paying and inflated bill – the Client!
These consultants earn their fee either from the successful contractor, who simply adds the fee paid onto the price of the contract, or generate sufficient ‘savings’ to justify their fee, with little regard to the overall quality of the resulting service.
