Partner: Grant Thornton UK LLP
Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is responsible for protecting and promoting British interests worldwide. One of its current programmes is the Prosperity Fund Better Health Programme, aimed at reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction in Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Burma.
FCO needed a suitable partner to support the assessment of approx. 50 proposals from Prosperity Fund Framework suppliers for delivery of the Programme, ensuring that it could commence according to the planned timeline. This included coordinating the process for evaluation, support training of assessors, and provision of experts to supplement evaluation panels. FCO issued an ITT via Crown Commercial Service’s Management Consultancy framework, RM3745.
Partnering with Bramble Hub, Grant Thornton UK demonstrated the required skills and experience in bid assessment processes and programme & project management to win the contract.
