rethink Procurement

Driving whole-life value

With experience of both procuring and managing large and complex contracts, we deliver a cradle-to-grave solution, focusing on building and maintaining whole-life value.

A whole-life approach that delivers lasting value

Our approach is to take whole-life view, ensuring that the contracts procured are easy to manage, enable suppliers to be held to account and anticipate change. Because we manage so many contracts on behalf of our clients, we know what works and what doesn’t.

Implementation and management

Active management of the contract to deliver whole-life value

Once the award is made, the real work begins. We’ll help you implement the new contract and then actively manage it to ensure supplier performance is maintained, that change is easy to manage and the contract delivers exactly what was anticipated.
