The procurement process can be a daunting one, even for seasoned procurement and bid managers. With a variety of stakeholders and documents likely to be involved, competing interests and deadlines that need to be managed, difficult budget constraints to work within and challenging resourcing issues, having your legal and commercial support sorted and available when you need it, at a fixed cost that suits your specific needs, can prove a welcome relief.
Whether you are the customer or the supplier with an outsourcing or procurement project in the public or private sector, we can:
- Advise on all procurement routes including Crown Commercial Service (CCS) frameworks/call-offs and G-Cloud
- Advise on all legal aspects of the procurement including OJEU notices, RFPs/ITTs, tender responses, evaluation criteria and methodology, contract terms and contract negotiations
- Quality assure commercial, financial and technical documents that have been drafted by your project team including strategy documentation, service levels and charging regimes, and service/technical specifications
- Provide post-contract support including drafting contract and user guides, running training workshops and ongoing contract and project management.
Our hourly rates range from £225 to £295 per hour (plus VAT). We charge for certain disbursements (such as train fares and photocopying). Where possible, we may offer fixed fees.
