Contract Pre-procurement Healthchecks

Where a Council has outsourced its waste collection, street cleansing or grounds maintenance services and these are due for renewal within the next 2 or 3 years now is the time to give serious consideration how these can be delivered more efficiently in future.

They normally represent the largest, single area of spend for Councils and by understanding the resources employed for the services delivered and carefully planning at an early stage, well before procurement, they can provide considerable opportunities for service redesign with an emphasis on reducing cost and where appropriate increasing performance.

WasteConsulting has a track record of working with local authorities to maintain – and in many cases improve – service standards while identifying and assisting with implementing efficiencies prior to contract.
