The Challenge

A critical service contract was nearing its expiry date with limited time to conduct a compliant EU regulated sourcing event with the customer having little experience in managing complex service contracts

The Solution

The Value Match team working in collaboration with the customer deployed its experienced consultant, together:

• Undertook a qualitative review of the current contract, supplier performance and existing documentation

• Designed pre-market engagement objectives, engagement process and plan

• Produced required EU Notices and prepared suitable tender documentation, integrating customers documentation and standards where applicable

• Designed specification and evaluation standards and processes

• Supported the customer in the issuing of relevant documentation

• Ensured the evaluation and award documentation met both the customer requirements and was fully EU compliant
