Partnership Working

As the pressure on local government to do ‘more with less’ intensifies, an ever growing number of authorities are looking to explore the possibilities of partnership working.

Eunomia has an unrivalled level of experience in supporting local authorities to analyse and quantify the benefits of waste and recycling partnerships. Our staff have been instrumental in establishing partnerships in Somerset, Gloucestershire, Dorset and Oxfordshire. However, most of our important work in this area involves the provision of practical support to authorities establishing enhanced partnership arrangements. This ranges from advising on simple joint procurements all the way through to taking a lead advisor role on the country’s largest partnership projects.

Eunomia’s Partnership Working team has proven experience in the following elements of investigating and delivering partnership working in waste:

  • Programme / Project Management
  • Change management
  • Funding options
  • Operational efficiency reviews
  • Governance and legal issues and options
  • Procurement
  • Business process analysis and improvement
  • HR transition and organisational design
  • Stakeholder engagement

Based on our considerable experience of partnership working in waste, we prepared a Waste Partnerships Route Map for Defra, which covers all stages of partnership development.
