Wiebe has over 15 years’ experience in the procurement of complex projects. His experience extends from procurement strategy to contract and project management. Wiebe is considered to be one of the founding fathers of Best Value in the Netherlands. Wiebe has proposed the Best Value approach for the “Fast Track” program and has made the Best Value approach applicable within the European legislation framework. As a member of the core team of Rijkswaterstaat (Dutch government agency for roads and waterways) he has won the Dutch Sourcing Awards 2012 for the application of the Best Value approach in the Fast Track program. This program also meant the final breakthrough of the Best Value approach in the Netherlands. Afterwards Wiebe has implemented and anchored the Best Value approach in the Rijkswaterstaat organization in his function of leader of the Best Value core team. In 2015 Wiebe has co-founded the Best Value Group, a company that helps to implement the Best Value approach in public and private organizations. Together with colleague Jeroen van de Rijt Wiebe has published the Dutch case book “Best Value works” (published by the Association Best Value Netherlands).
