Utility Procurement Health Check

Verify that you're getting the best deal

Utilities spend can be a large part of a business’s budget. You may have arrangements in place and wish to ensure that you are getting the best deal.

Our Utility Benchmarking Service will identify whether your current utility supply arrangements are as competitive as they could be.

If the results show you are paying too much, we then offer a more in-depth review of your utility strategy, spend and processes via our 4-step Utility Procurement Review.

This cost-effective Utility Procurement Review will formally benchmark your commercial supply arrangements, raise internal awareness of your organisation’s utility expenditure and streamline processes to effectively manage and control your utility requirements.

Utility Markets

Utility markets are a challenging place.  Not only do businesses face the volatility and uncertainty of wholesale commodity market conditions, but also the increasing price risk surrounding additional third-party charges and government levies. We can assist you to understand these influencing factors and why timing critical when awarding Contracts.

What does a Utility Procurement Review include?

Adopting our 4-stage process we will:

  • Establish the ‘as-is’ position from your invoices and contracts.
  • Conduct a Gap Analysis to identify key areas requiring review.
  • Carry out an in-depth analysis of areas identified, including a review of both historical and existing supply contract arrangements and their performance against market conditions.
  • Produce a Management Report detailing findings and conclusions together with recommendations and opportunities for improvement.
