    Abstract

    Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a concept that is used right across the world in many industries. SCM involves the management of relationships with all parties including client, contractor and sub-contractor in order to achieve the specific needs of a client's objectives in a project. Construction organisations that have an effective Supply Chain Management in place can expect reduced project costs and increased reliability and speed of facility construction. Several studies have been conducted over the past decade in establishing a preferred procurement method/process used on construction projects and defining the relationships that exist between each party involved in these projects, however, companies differ amongst one another which has resulted in an array of different responses. A short study was conducted last year to investigate above using both primary and secondary data collection in order to establish the extent of supply chain relationship and integration within Victorian construction organisations.
