We work with public sector organisations to deliver strategic, transformational solutions tailored to meet the challenges posed by the need for attaining lower operating costs whilst maintaining essential services.
Our approach is to draw on our established and proven methodology to work with public service departments and authorities to help re-design their operational processes, enabling front line and essential services to be delivered at lower cost. We do this by bringing together the significant commercial business world experience of our public sector advisory team with those tasked with operating within the very specific demands of public sector service provision, ensuring that maximum value is achieved for every pound spent.
Our advisors have particular expertise in the challenges of public sector procurement, specifically focussing on the entire process from budget planning to end sourcing and supplier management. Not simply looking for cheaper alternatives, but ensuring only what is needed is bought, sourcing it in the most efficient way and ensuring that suppliers continue to offer full value throughout the whole life of a contract, delivering greater value at lower overall cost.
The services we offer:
Many public sector entities are faced with fully reviewing their core strategies and embarking on major organisational re-structuring. New strategies and approaches to public services management and provision are essential to drive up productivity and carry out the necessary reforms. We work with senior management teams to update governance structures, re-engineer business processes, enhance systems and usage, implement performance management practices, and positively affect public sector culture. Our approach incorporates the best practices in programme management to ensure the fullest progress against strategic change initiatives.
Almost all public sector entities are under pressure to cut costs. We help our clients through offering expert procurement advice from consultants with more than 30 years of real-world experience in this field. We work closely with clients to identify the organisation’s unique and valued capabilities, identify what goods and services are necessary and contribute fully to the overall function of the department and those that do not and then advise on how to reduce costs in an informed manner without disrupting front line and critical functions.
Can be an attractive option to reduce costs, as well as gain flexibility and speed up innovation and change. We specialize in working with top management teams to design the best partnering arrangements and realise improved value from any legacy outsource arrangements. Our advice draws on our deep knowledge of, and the risks associated with, the various outsource models used in the past, together with the associated specific challenges and risks of adopting these in a public sector environment.
We always work in a collaborative manner and are not in the business of second guessing. We do not offer advice on which services to deliver, only on how to deliver them most efficiently. All our advisors have many years experience working in or with public sector organisations. We have a deep appreciation of the very specific challenges faced within the public sector and especially the need to effect change in a manner which not only retains and supports the best qualities of both staff and functions but also seeks to improve the quality of output operations and service delivery.
