What is a Procurement?

The procurement process is a key point at which organisational strategy is translated in reality through the letting of a contract for works, goods, or services.

A procurement process that delivers strategic and organisational objectives must clearly articulate the contract requirement to the market so as to provide confidence which will be reflected in quality tenders that represent best value. The development of a contract therefore requires an appropriate level of background information, comprehensive specification of the requirement, an aligned commercial suite, and a robust and transparent evaluation approach.

The Public Contracts Regulations (2015) provide the governance framework for the award of public sector contracts. Ensuring that procurement processes are delivered in line with these regulations is key to minimising procurement challenge risk.

For prospective suppliers to public sector organisations, participation in a procurement process can involve the preparation of a quality tender response, determining competitive commercial rates, or participating in competitive dialogue processes.

Why Seek Consultancy Support?

Along with the regulatory requirement of the Public Contract Regulations, a well-considered and comprehensive procurement process is more likely to address potential contract risks, inspire market confidence and deliver best value.

Tenderers who seek professional bid support can benefit substantially from the procedural and evaluation insight, as well as market understanding that can inform bid pricing. Tenderes can also receive advice on bid variants or alternative approaches that could be competitively attractive and typically score higher on quality criteria.

How We Make It Possible

The WRM procurement service supports contracting authorities in the technical development of contracts, and in the procedural management of the procurement processes.

Our team can advise on the most appropriate procurement strategy relative to your requirement, before moving on to develop the full suite of contract documentation. This includes undertaking TEEP assessments and developing evaluation models to determine financial and environmental performance of different service delivery approaches. Our extensive work with legal and accountancy co-professionals ensures that our documents align with wider deliverables. Support to develop contracts can be followed up with support through the negotiation, evaluation and preferred bidder appointment stages.

For tenderers responding to contract opportunities, we can advise on response strategies, draft method statements of the highest quality, undertake pricing research and analysis; all of which can be wrapped into an overall tender management service.

Please note that WRM cannot work for contracting authorities and prospective suppliers on the same contract opportunity. We undertake a conflict check on each and every commission to ensure that subsequent procurement work is not compromised in any way.
