Suppliers and Markets

Supporting the management of key strategic suppliers and contracts and evaluating market risk.


Our team 

Our Supplier Management team looks at the maturity and effectiveness of our collective Contract Management and Strategic Supplier Relationship Management approach. Our objective is to support both operational and commercial teams to drive effective management and proactive value improvement across the most important suppliers that the forces engage with.

Our expertise

Improving contract management capability and reducing contract leakage.

Driving contract tiering, benefit realisation, cross functional stakeholder engagement, robust governance, class leading performance management, change control, effective dispute resolution, proactive risk management and continuous improvement.

Developing an approach to supplier segmentation that enables clear evaluation of strategic supplier relationships to help drive incremental value improvement.

How we can help

We start by defining the baseline level of contract management maturity within the Forces - identifying, shaping and rolling out learning and development to share best practice and support development requirements. We work directly with contract management stakeholders, using specific examples to focus on particular needs so we can deploy the most effective tools.
