FPA Consulting undertook a detailed assessment of the two current arrangements to firstly determine their suitability in relation to the day to day operational needs of the school and secondly to evaluate whether or not they were providing value for money.
This involved a review of the current arrangements to determine if they offered the optimum service solution.
The main aims were to establish if any cost savings could be achieved and to improve the level of service currently being provided.
During our review we found that Trent College had two suppliers for waste management services which were both providing a similar service.
Following a detailed review of the current arrangements and assessment of future operational requirements it was decided that a single service provider for the whole requirement would be more beneficial.
We also carried out a procurement exercise for the renewal of waste management services, and then provide ongoing post-contract support for the subsequent new agreement.
The key benefits arising from the activities undertaken by FPA were as follows:
“FPA provided a specialism which the school did not have in-house. Through their professional structured procurement approach, we have been helped to substantially reduce our annual costs, rationalise the number of service providers and obtain an improved service provision which better meets the needs of the school.”James Gregory, Director of Operations, Trent College
