Whether through new-style repairs and maintenance partnering contracts, PFI or joint ventures, housing organisations increasingly find themselves in long-term contractual arrangements with the private sector. Managed well, these partnerships can bring real cost benefits as well as improving service and invigorating your business.
We offer a comprehensive service on all aspects of partnering. This includes managing OJEU Procurement on your behalf, putting effective contracts in place to relationship management.
Based on our wide experience, including bringing five organisations together in a 30-year PFI partnership, we can support you in creating genuine, sustainable partnerships that deliver real, long-term benefits for all parties. Alongside our more formal role as Partnering Advisers, we can work with your team on the softer, 'people' aspects such as:
- getting partnerships off on a strong footing, building trust and dealing with the cultural dynamics that inevitably surface in these new ways of working
- putting in place the right structures that facilitate joint working
- making sure that everyone involved understand the contracts, the relationships and new ways of working, through training and plain language versions of procedures and contracts
