As a customer you would expect to get the best calibre professional resources working alongside you on your projects. If you think back at the last engagements where you have been supplied someone new, how comfortable were you that they understood what you were trying to achieve, do you think that they were an extension to your internal team? The critical question is, if you were recruiting for a full-time position, would you actually shortlist them?

The UK is facing a potentially costly divorce bill over its ‘readjustment’ to their involvement in the Galileo project post Brexit. Galileo is a European satellite constellation which, when complete in 2020, will be an alternative to the US Global Positioning System (GPS) network.

At the moment the UK’s options are somewhat limited as the EU Commission has stated that the world leading UK space industry may be frozen out of future work on the programme as a result of Brexit.

If you provide cloud-based services and want to sell to the government then listing on G-Cloud is a must.

With sales of nearly £2.9 billion coming via the G-Cloud framework since its inception in 2012 to the end of 2017 it represents a significant opportunity for business.

Although in 2017 almost £500 million of sales were placed with SMEs as part of the G-Cloud framework, the vast majority of G-Cloud suppliers actually delivered nothing at all.

With the announcement by De la Rue on the 22 March 2018 that, on the completion of the current bid cycle, they would no longer be producing the British passport “despite submitting a high quality, competitive bid” we can see that size and history are no guarantee of success.

Bidding for contracts due to Carillion's collapse

In recent news, the collapse of the construction and outsourcing company Carillion has left many questions unanswered. Carillion was one of the UK’s biggest contractors for supplying support services to schools, hospitals, prisons and many more. Carillion collapsed during the first few weeks of January 2018, leaving 28,000 staff facing uncertain futures. But it’s not just the employees of Carillion that will be affected. Carillion customers are now having to consider their options to ensure completion of their construction projects or continuation of their support services.

OJEU procurement consultancy framework

Will you be running OJEU procurements in 2018 and considering securing OJEU-approved procurement consultancy support to deliver the process? If you need to manage a competitive procurement but don’t have the resources at hand to do so, you might have to run another competition first to select the consultancy to support the procurement for you! This can be a distraction and takes time and money - both of which may be scarce.
