Procurement

The Gig Economy, collaborative technology, flexible working patterns and a global workforce are all leading to diversity in the way that organizations need to engage skills and expertise in their businesses. As this diversity gathers pace, it is becoming increasingly difficult for organizations to leverage buying power and maintain control over a growing supplier base of service providers ranging from traditional ad-hoc contingent resources through to consultancy projects and professional services. This is leading to high levels of unregulated, poorly mandated maverick spending patterns.

That’s where we can help. Our Services Procurement solution is designed to consolidate all of an organizations spend on skills, expertise, knowledge and consultancy into one place. This provides technology, reporting, invoice and governance consolidation and a single point of contact for all consultancy and professional services spend.

We cover the following areas:

  • Project scoping and SoW design
  • Supplier management and sign-up
  • Competitive marketplace management
  • PMO governance and process delivery
  • MI reporting across all projects

Our services offer our clients a number of benefits

  • Cost savings across all spend
  • One point of contact
  • Consolidated invoicing and MI
  • OJEU compliant (via YPO framework)
  • High return on investment

And we have experience of working with a number of high profile complex organizations

We have been working with Hull City Council since 2016 delivering a full consultancy and professional services managed service.
