Abstract: To support Wrexham County Borough Councils change programme an external provider is required to support a series of ‘lean interventions’ across the whole authority with a view to implementing proposals to deliver any identified efficiencies. The authority anticipates that this will be in two phases; Phase One would be a diagnostic review to identify opportunities and if progressed to Phase Two, the implementation phase in partnership with the Council to deliver efficiencies.
There is a desire to minimise transactional activity by driving efficiencies throughout the Organisation and whilst it is understood that we need to be regulated and performance managed it is also recognised that these functions will reduce proportionately to the size of the organisation, hence, the Consultant is also expected to address these issues as part of the engagement.
With the core purpose maximising customer value and eliminating waste and costs ‘Lean interventions’ will be carried out in the areas identified across the Authority and will need to be closely monitored (by both the Consultant and the Council) with the Consultant expected to consult and engage regularly with key Council Officers / Members. The purpose is to maximise customer value while minimising waste, simply by creating more value for customers with fewer resources. Another key factor is for the consultant to facilitate knowledge transfer onto the authority.
The consultant will be expected to track progress and report in terms of the following key areas:
- Identified
- Business Case Approved
- In Delivery
- Payment made based on Delivered
The commercial basis for this engagement will be:
- Fixed lump sum payment for diagnostic review work. This should be recoverable through the implementation phase, provided that it is progressed.
- Risk reward payment for implementation of findings – the supplier will be paid entirely according to cashable benefits realised. Based on the "delivered" phase.
- Cap on reward – there will be a ‘cap’ placed on the reward payments made.
- Clear outcomes must be identifiable and achievable in relation to all recommendations.
- Financial and, where necessary performance, baseline to be signed off by s.151 officer before commencement of the diagnostic.
- Agreement of scope of opportunities to be determined ahead of the diagnostic work, for example, ceasing a service will not contribute to the financial gain for the purposes of risk and reward payments.
