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.
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.

Check out some of our recent projects to learn more about our diverse experience.
A key aspect of the work was to identify and fully quantify the full range of organic waste collection and treatment options available to GMCA and its nine collection authorities. WRM were able to provide this advice as a result of our expertise in organic waste systems, and as a result of over fifteen years of strategy and cost modelling work.
Overall, a well delivered project; timely and with good communication throughout. Great to work with likeminded professionals who also offered alternative project options.
WRMs experience and understanding of the organics sector and high level of service was notable throughout the procurement. The flexibility shown by the WRM team following the change in procurement approach was instrumental to concluding the contract in a timely manner.
As organic waste specialists, the WRM team were able to provide a good level of insight into various food waste collection options. This was supported by detailed knowledge of costs and market dynamics which supported the feasibility aspect of the project.
WRM worked independently and diligently to produce a full suite of comprehensive method statements for a leading organic waste recycling company that helped support a strong tender bid, including the attainment of the highest technical score on the food waste lot. The bid resulted in the award of the Food and Green Waste Treatment Services for a 5 year contract.
WRM provided a prompt and thorough response to tender, resulting in the successful award of a green waste contract for RRS.
WRM provided a thorough procurement service to help us identify the best system and provider to meet our needs. We are now progressing the project with confidence as a result of this process.
WRM did a sterling job in drafting the large amount of technical tender documentation required in a constrained timescale. Thanks to their support the council received a good response to our market approach.
WRM have supported the growth of our companies by providing excellent specialist knowledge, managing challenging projects, and delivering on time. We continue to work with them as a safe pair of hands we can rely on.
