Procurement and Contracts

Procurement and contract arrangements today make up a considerable proportion of an organisation’s expenditure, be this from major capital projects (buildings, roads etc) replacement of ICT equipment, or in more operational contracts such as facilities management.

The need to get the best provider for your services is paramount in a climate of reducing financial envelopes; establishing trusted long term relationships with suppliers that will help you achieve your objectives is crucial.

Contract law and European requirements makes contracting a potential area of risk if procedures are not followed as expected. The possibility of potential penalties and financial remedies for poor contracting arrangements is always present.

We have a number of staff experienced in procurement and contract arrangements who can help to ensure your procurement and contracting arrangements are sound, effective and efficient and are meeting your legal requirements. Our aim is to help you develop your systems so that you obtain best value for money, and to give advice and guidance on the procurement processes required to meet EU legislation.

Our team can help you

  • Develop effective processes to manage the tendering arrangements
  • Help develop Supplier and Contract Performance Management arrangements
  • Review your processes, making recommendations to ensure “best value”

We are able to call upon specialist contract guidance from our host partner (Devon County Council) where the need arises.
