Carolina Procurement Institute, Inc. Quality Control

  • CPI stands by “best practices’’ which means the “best’’ for you. This

    cognitive prospective demands a resolution to problems, simple or

    complex. CPI provides an assessment of what the potential client is

    presently doing , evaluates and determines what measures must be

    accomplished for the potential client to be eligible for contract work. This

    is key to success. We then devise a work plan with the client of

    timelines and performance based measuring standards (benchmarks).

  • Conduct thorough screening and collect documentation on bid awards

    to ensure that client’s are working within their capacity.

  • Consider your company’s vision, perspective, disciplines and controls

    to minimize work crisis.

  • Adhere to proactive communications to eliminate client’s internal

    operational oversights. Maintain a superb documentation trail.

  • Develop positive ongoing relationships with company managers to

    ensure contract requirements are fulfilled to the highest possible level of

    customer’s satisfaction.
