Charles Kendall and Partners
Charles Kendall & Partners Limited, a member of the Charles Kendall Group of companies, was established in 1945. They provide supply chain and procurement advisory services to governments, donors, international agencies, NGOs and private sector clients worldwide.
With experience in over 100 countries, they help governments achieve the results on which their aid depends, while donors look to them to help ensure that their projects are delivered effectively. They manage globally significant projects, for example they currently manage funds of over USD$4 billion and have procured goods, works and services worth over USD$2 billion for the US Government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation. This is balanced by the human scale of their business: they are small enough to be flexible, innovative and work proactively to protect our client’s best interests.
