ICT Procurements; Contractual Risk Evaluation

Mr Steve Sewell, Head of Informatics

“Working with BPG has saved us a lot of time in clarifying contracts, and eliminated many of the grey areas in our contract negotiation.  We now manage most of our procurements ourselves, but we have followed BPG’s approach since our first risk evaluation workshop. It’s a very simple way, at a low cost, to cut a lot of longer-term cost out of procurement.  And it’s given us a much better understanding of how to avoid the risk inherent in major ICT procurements.  I would absolutely recommend BPG to any NHS trust.”
