TATA decided to go for the recruitment option through g2.
Due to the considerable difference in cost, TATA could not see enough extra value in the Wood Group proposal. The ability to directly manage the consultants throughout and keep them accountable to their deliverables on a daily basis was also a major factor.
There are only a few inspectors with the correct experience of working on steel plants, so the likelihood of them for working for consultancy is very slim, meaning Wood Group would have had to hire contractors at a greater cost than g2.
The end result allowed TATA to select a team that provided a mixture of consultants that complemented each others skills, some of whom had previously worked together on long term contracts.
