ICT Contracts Mentoring Support

Mr Derek Walker, Assistant Head of ICT

“I’m more than ready to recommend Best Practice Group PLC. Any public-sector organisation will have contract lawyers but sometimes you need advice from someone with specialist knowledge of ICT contracts. In our case, we have a mentoring agreement with BPG that lets us call them whenever we need a more in-depth knowledge of a specific contract issue, but also means we manage the majority of the process ourselves. If you’re going to use BPG, it’s best to involve them early in the process – the cause of most problems will be there, even if the problems themselves don’t surface till later.”
