Large complex bids for bidders or procurement authorities

We are a small consultancy but with significant vast experience. We have a core team of industry specific experts with a record of winning and mobilising bids, leading challenging programmes and providing assurance plus a complementary network of associates to address peaks and troughs. Often, we are asked to provide a template bid team structure and we will do this free of charge as part of our pre-sales. Whether you need leadership, contract management, HR or process support, we can help you to put in a winning submission. We have a proven track record in rail franchise bidding, leading the Docklands Light Railway winning bid for KeolisAmey and supplying leaders and experts for Merseyrail, East Coast project, Trans Pennine Express, London Midland, London Overground, Manchester Metrolink, GTR, National Crime Squad ICT and various Middle East projects

Strategic reviews (markets, bids, programmes)

We use seasoned sector experts (internally they call themselves ‘The Greybeards’) to advise and shape your strategy and growth plans. We consider global trends and innovation including a focus on competitors, technology, delivery and risk management.

Outputs include reports, process and costed plans for growth and improvement. Our differentiator is that our consultants don’t just advise, they will also implement or govern transformation if required.

Our specialist skills primarily are focussed on market analysis and customer research, launching new services, franchise bidding and franchise mobilisation, stakeholder and partnership management, customer experience and sourcing of industry experts.

Mobilisation, implementation and transformation

We don’t just advise, we also do. Our consultants fit seamlessly into your team so that others can’t tell the difference between your people and ours – it’s one team. Our pool of operational and transformation experts can help to ensure the successful transition through the mobilisation phase and seamlessly hand over to project teams. We apply best practice to ensure smooth implementation of services to your customers. Our mobilisation successes include the Docklands Light Railway, the Home Office/HMRC Cyclamen Programme and Merseyrail
