Consolidate

Gain Advantage with Gulf Project Solutions

Through the winning of contracts and the absorption of incumbent staff most DoD companies in the Middle East have found themselves fragmented across too many sponsorship and life support suppliers. Historically the industry has been reluctant to consolidate accepting this condition as “the nature of the business”. Recently, however, many leading companies have correctly concluded that over the long run the one-time effort of transferring personal is significantly more effective vs managing multiple vendors over the life of the project. They are discovering that managing multiple vendors is time-consuming, leading to increased costs as well as reduced efficiency and by consolidating they are gaining competitive advantages. Here are six reasons why GPS is the best solution to create that advantage.


Reduce Cost

Reduced Costs

Consolidating with GPS reduces project time and material costs by creating an efficient and reliable centralized processing center for all administrative functions. Our clients work with one legal and procurement office to process all regional requirements to include contracts, purchase orders, vendor reps and certs, and subcontractor registration. Further reducing administrative time is our client dashboard which stores all project deliverables and purchase order information so it can be easily tracked and analyzed for efficient exchange of necessary data needed to process documentation. The dashboard has the added advantage of eliminating the issues created by the different time zones between US office and the Middle East as administrators have access to necessary information within seconds.


Streamlined Management

Streamlined Management

Consolidating with GPS not only reduces the number of contracts and purchase orders that need to be managed with other vendors it also reduces them regionally as our clients are able to cover all of their regional projects through the execution of one general services agreement, one purchase order, and one monthly payment.  To further make management easier and transparent we also provide our clients with a client dashboard (Common Operational Picture) - this password-protected web-portal provides our clients with 24-hour access to real-time data of all their projects across the region.  Data includes:

    • - All procured services along with deliverables and milestones 
    • - Purchase order details, status and burn rates
    • - WPS Payroll Management 
    • - Manages communication plans 
    • - Secure platform for uploading documents for processing
    • - Houses all process flow charts for all country-specific sponsorship and driver license

Our clients are also provided a regional main POC making communication more efficient and reliable. 

COVID-19 – To help our clients with their response plans to COVID 19 restrictions that may impact project performance we created a special COVID Readiness Dashboard that provides current status as well alerts to changes in host nation COVID 19 restrictions.

reduced risk

Reduced Risk and Volatility

We take the risk out of contract execution by guaranteeing consistency, predictability, and contract compliance by applying strict industry standards for:

    • - All procured services along with deliverables and milestones 
    • - Purchase order details, status and burn rates
    • - WPS Payroll Management 
    • - Manages communication plans 
    • - Secure platform for uploading documents for processing
    • - Houses all process flow charts for all country-specific sponsorship

We further reduce risk by keeping clients informed with early warning notices of local law changes that have the potential to impact project requirements.
Another reduced risk factor is transparency.  The client dashboard lists all deliverables status and provides in-depth flow charts to all key local ministry processes.  Our belief that it is our duty to our clients to keep them as informed and educated as possible on project performance and Host Nation laws and processes.  The more informed the client is the more effectively we can work together to mitigate risk and ensure mission success.  

COVID -19 – To help limit risk related to Host Nation COVID 19 restrictions our COVID 19 Readiness Dashboard provides daily status and alerts to changes.  This enables our client to quickly analyze and react to restrictions that may negatively impact project performance.
