Procurement

Plan B provides full turnkey procurement services to Public Sector Organisations across the United Kingdom. Plan B has developed a talented team of advisors with a proven ability to achieve best value for our Public Sector clients.

We utilise our in depth knowledge of the Private Sector to develop unique and forward thinking procurement strategies that draw innovative and high quality service solutions from potential service suppliers. Our aim is always to work with our clients to meet their key aims and objectives for the service and to achieve best value solutions in terms of cost and quality.

There has been increasing pressure on Public Sector Bodies to achieve best value for the services they deliver. Improvements have been made through exploiting the opportunities presented by new technologies, developing better business processes and working methods, etc. However, one of the most prevalent ways of improving services and achieving greater value for money is the introduction of smarter procurement practices and initiatives.

It has now become widely accepted that the Public Sector can vastly improve the quality, delivery and cost effectiveness of local services through better and smarter procurement practices. Plan B’s skills and capabilities within the field of procurement combined with our Private Sector experience and vast understanding of the Public Sector makes the Company the ideal choice for Public Sector bodies seeking to achieve better value services through smarter procurement.

Unlike many of our competitors who focus on guiding Public Sector bodies through the complex labyrinth of public procurement rules and regulations; Plan B supports our clients in adhering to these rules, regulations and guidelines, but focus our efforts on achieving the best possible results and outcomes for our clients and the people they serve.

Our procurement services are client and customer focused and we work with our Public Sector clients to transform services, improve performance and outcomes, and to improve the lives of those people our clients serve.

The services Plan B offer clients in terms of procurement includes the preparation of OJEU Contract Notices, Pre-Qualification Questionnaires, Tender and Contract Documentation; Specification Design; Tender Evaluation Modelling; Pre-Qualification Questionnaire and Tender Evaluation; Contract Negotiations and Award; Contract Mobilisation; Procurement Strategy and Options Analysis; Technical Advice; Preparation of a ‘Shadow’ Bid; Management of Clarification Process; Stakeholder Consultation and Involvement; and Soft Market Testing.
