Today’s organisations, whether in the public sector or private business, have to keep a tight rein on their spending.

How we help
Expertise across a diverse range of industries
Delivering results with guaranteed outcomes
With a strong record of delivering results for the NHS, we support at integrated care system- (ICS) and individual trust level to meet immediate NHS objectives as well as achieving sustainable transformation.
We’ve recently worked with eight NHS trusts and created a shared service, unlocking benefits through aligned processes, economies of scale, talent alignment and avoiding duplication of effort.
Case study: supporting improved patient care with procurement transformation
After a transformation programme which enhanced governance, contract management, business intelligence, training, service quality and more, the new procurement service we introduced at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) is helping to improve care for 2 million people, saving £millions, and supporting a more effective workforce.
We now operate a flexible managed procurement service with stakeholder satisfaction having improved by 19%.
Expert defence industry knowledge to support initiatives
The continuing requirement to acquire and develop often very expensive modern weapons, systems, and technology require careful consideration of requirements. We’ve helped defence organisations with programmes that have resulted in the development of trials for Defence Equipment and Support and for the Airforce, securing funding for trials and stakeholder support for their energy performance contract strategy.
We also supported the Ministry of Defence (MOD) in developing their route to market, recognising the limited number of service providers capable of dealing with sites of the scale of the MOD estate. Our expert support to the MOD in discussions with HM Treasury on the accounting treatment for 3rd party financed energy performance contracts allowed successful initial discussions, facilitating the projects to market.
Further industry expertise
We unlock collaboration benefits on commercial contracts with skilled resources in contract-, category- and supplier relationship management to make savings and generate income.
We helped London's largest local authority deliver over 700 tenders, achieving £10million in savings, conducting tenders in line with EU regulations to ensure compliance. We help councils navigate contracts to meet their social value-, SME-, local- and political agendas, building commercial skills and introducing contract databases with visibility of spend analytics.
We’re acutely attuned to the challenges facing our manufacturing clients who value our experience in accelerated delivery programmes and our de-risked commercial solutions.
