Private and Publie Job

By yooisme Apr 14, 2013 786 Words
There are always different points of view between the needs of clients for public and for private sectors. There are 4 major factors affecting the choice of different procurement and contractual arrangement in both the public and private sectors. They are “Prestige”, “Profitability”, “Expectation” and “Quality”. The factor will be different in every case or project with different humanity, person, company… Prestige is very important especial for those project by public sector. It could be one of the factors that would affect a company for many years. For an example, many of the government projects is over budget as they thought before, that was not because they had a poor management and arrangement, it was because they will always try to do the best as they can to afford others people negative command. Therefore, change and change happened during the civil work or building time but still need to be finished on time. In this case, the public sectors had to invest more and more money into the project and try to maintain the quality of wok, finishing time on the project and the expectation for public. However it is not usually happened in the private sectors side, because for most of them the major factor affecting them is “Profitability” Profitability is the other major factor, without it no one will get in to the business. Most of the clients on private sectors side will put this factor on the top of their project. Sometime they will decrease the building time for the project. They want to finish it faster mostly because of two issues. First it could save money in their pocket and also they will have more people go for another project. In the positive side it is mean that they can use less time and limited people or workers and less money to work on the projects in hand. Second is the market. In an open market like Hong Kong that we are living right now, the unit price is different in every day. Every single developer want to sell it in a higher price to gain as much as it can. Therefore shorten of time can have a better chance to gain more profit. It is happened for most of the big development company. But there is also negative side for that. Since the make the building time shorter, the quality of work and the expectation may not up to the standard or people expected. Shorten period of time will make work not as good as before for most of the cases. For an example, choice of material and supplier will be limited. It may affect the quality, and also it may have lot of defective. The other two factors are “Expectation” and “Quality”. In every project no matter the client is on public or private sectors side, the will have expectation. Expectation can be so many things. From the design of work, quality of work, finishing time, choosing of material… Many of the things is related to quality and

different people in different position will have different opinion. For an example most of the expectation for the developer (client) from both the private and public sector is try to use as less money as they expected to have the best quality or work material as they could and less time to finished the project, so they could have the more profit. Since time, quality and profit are always cannot have it on the same time, they have to make a decision of give up at least one factor or keeping the one that could make them most success. In this case the two sector may have and different result, because they are facing different of client. For those public sectors expectation is huge for them. It is because they are building something that not only for severing a small group of people, sometime for the world. That is one of the major reason public sector always gain less or nothing. For private side, the just only need to follow what is the market needed in that period of time for those small groups of people. They may not using the best material that they could use or doing the best they could, but they could make the expectation for the people in the market that they involved. Either clients for private or public sectors, the 4 major factors “Prestige”, “Profitability”, “Expectation” and “Quality” cannot be balance at the same time. There is always a hard decision making between left or right and north of south. There is always no true winner but if someone made a right decision to keep what the client needs, there is always a successful project.
