RHE has the skills to advise Local Authorities on shared services or outsourcing alternatives. At this critical time each Local Authority needs to assess its budget and what can be delivered in the light of financial pressure. RHE has the expertise to assist in all stages of these options.
Stage 1 Option Analysis
We can assist with option assessment and feasibility studies utilising our matrix approach including qualitative and quantitative factors.
Stage 2 Procurement and Selection
We can design and deliver the essential components for the procurement process to downselect to the final supplier. Our expertise includes the ability to assist throughout the process of PPQ and RFP preparation, competitive dialogue and decision making.
Stage 3 Negotiation and Contract Signing
RHE has advanced negotiating experience and can assist with negotiating to deliver the optimal contract including financial terms, SLAs and warranties.
Online Support Tools
In addition RHE has pioneered the online RIAMS system and this system is well placed to be the repository for insourcing or to form the kernel of a shared service, outsourcing initiative or mutual. The system can retain the ‘tribal history’ of the Local Authority in the event that changes take place.
RIAMS is licensed to local authorities entering shared services agreements and for use by firms supplying outsourced personnel for audit, compliance and support services as a core component to ensure service standards, consistency and to underpin competence.
