Strategy & Procurement

Specialist technical waste strategy and procurement services for the public (local authority) and private sectors.

Waste Strategy Services

When developing a local authority waste strategy, it is essential to fully understand existing and emerging waste collection and treatment options so that the merits of different approaches can be qualitatively and quantitatively assessed against local authority and best value objectives. 

WRM provides local authorities with specialist waste strategy advice, from optioneering to governance approval and strategy adoption. Our approach to providing independent consultancy advice, which includes techno-economic modelling and stakeholder analysis, results in a robust evidence base for navigating political governance and approvals processes.

Our experience of working for local authority customers includes:

  • Recycling and refuse collection option analysis
  • Waste treatment capacity market assessment
  • Business case development for design-build-operate solutions
  • Modelling integrated solutions to identify the optimum collection and treatment solution
  • Preparation of strategy documentation including procurement and delivery programmes
  • Governance and approval support

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.

Private Sector Waste Tender Support

Whatever sector you work in the process of bidding and tendering for work can be highly competitive, complex and time consuming. The procurement process adopted can vary greatly and tendering for public waste service contracts can be challenging. Prospective bidders face challenges that arise from the need to rapidly interpret a large number of documents, develop solutions in line with the brief and prepare tender responses, including high quality method statements, bid forms and supporting information. Having a member of your bid team that understands how to successfully navigate a procurement with the benefit of working on the contracting side, can provide that competitive advantage.

WRM have supported many private sector organisations bidding on public waste contracts. Our team can provide the level of support required to meet with your needs from fully responding to a tender opportunity, to writing specific method statements to support your bid. Given our public sector experience we can review your proposed submission against the requirements set out within the ITT, acting as your critical friend to ensure your bid can be as strong as possible. Our range of bidder services includes:

  • Commercial structuring of tender.
  • Evaluation criteria and weighting analysis.
  • Preparation and review of method statements and bid forms.
  • Competitive dialogue support.
  • Bid management, collation and submission.
  • Mobilisation support.
