We act on behalf of local authorities, PCTs and other public bodies in tendering housing, support and care services, including the production of all the tendering documentation. We have particular expertise in outsourcing specialist housing to housing associations, as well as the transfer of care and support services.

    We advise providers on how to make effective tender submissions. We can provide easy-to-use flexible costing models that can include one to seven year (or longer) detailed budgets and staff team projections, start up periods, optional salary increments, etc. Detailed models are available that include rota planning and service capacity for different types of services. Increasingly we are helping providers adopt a strategic approach to tendering including reviewing their terms and conditions of employment and their management structure and overheads.
