The firm’s knowledge of proven acquisition protocols (eg SMART) and project management frameworks (eg PRINCE2, MSP etc) can be deployed to ensure appropriate governance and project controls throughout the life cycle. The basic premise and discipline of identifying a performance, cost and time contention for the relevant options and then carrying out an ‘evidence based analysis’ of the options to prove a case, remains at the heart of what we offer. By combining these analysis disciplines with a sound understanding of the relevant supplier markets, benchmarking, procurement timelines, etc our advisers are able to maintain a practical, active and professional set of protections to the client’s position.
Advalus prepare investment appraisal and business cases to meet both internal project sign-off procedures and to meet any broader cross Government requirements (including the reporting and approval requirements for HM Treasury and the Cabinet Office).
Advalus ‘Subject Matter Experts’ have been advising on complex procurement projects and structured transactions for government and corporate clients since the mid 1990’s. In fact the need for support on complex project procurement and the relative shortage of genuine experts was one of the main triggers and rationale for setting the firm up in 2003. Advalus can support internal teams on both the procurement process products for external suppliers, as well as the internal validation.
Advalus consultants have an in-depth knowledge of identifying, drafting, letting, and ‘closing’ the spectrum of contracts that arise from complex projects and organisational change. The purposes of these contracts include the managed service procurements, asset and service supply contracts, outsourcing models, and the transition / transformation obligations for legacy positions.
Advalus technical consultants are able to provide design assurance, solution assessment and implementation advice across the full range of ICT systems and services. The firm has a particular competence in the specification, assessment and deployment of secure voice/data networks and telecommunications.
Advalus has supported complex transitions and transformations on major ICT, accommodation and specialist asset procurements that have been embedded within large scale organisational change programmes. The firm has supported large scale complex programmes through life; in order to deal with second and third wave change modifications.
