Commissioning and Delivery Options

We can help you find which of the different delivery options is right for your circumstances.

There are many ways that buyers secure the services they are looking for. Understanding which is most likely to meet their requirements needs a detailed understanding of the pros and cons of each. Our detailed market understanding enables us to advise on how suppliers are likely to react to different service design options.

We have worked to set up and evaluate all of the widely-used service models including:

  • Local authority controlled companies (utilising the ‘Teckal’ exemption);
  • In-house service;
  • Outsourcing;
  • Partnerships and collaborative procurements (utilising the ‘Hamburg’ exemption).

We have developed an in-house tool to help evaluate the costs and benefits of different commissioning options helping us to provide a systematic and robust basis for our advice.
