Sometimes the only way to compete for a contract is as a partnership or consortium. This brings with it a number of challenges. For providers the challenges are those of ensuring equity and mutual accountability through agreeing consortium structures and arrangements that are fair and open.
For the procuring authority the challenge is all about achieving excellence and economy in delivery and being assured that the consortium is; robust enough to stay the distance, reliable enough to fulfil the contract and is regulated and run effectively. For them it’s all about having the confidence to invest a multi-provider consortium that operates in a professional and purposeful manner.
This workshop will provide you with a step by step guide to consortium formation; exploring the organisational challenges and practical aspects of successful collaboration; equipping you with a comprehensive grounding in the principles and technical aspects of partnership and consortium working and enabling a more informed approach to bidding as a provider consortium.
