BRG Appointed to Crown Commercial Service Management Consultancy Framework
Berkeley Research Group has been appointed by the United Kingdom’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to provide consulting services as part of its Management Consultancy Framework.
The framework will have an estimated total value of £2 to £3 billion and will run for four years. The framework service has been created to provide a way for the UK government to access consultancy advice across different sectors.
BRG's place on the framework will enable clients—including government bodies, sub-national bodies and local authorities—to procure the firm’s expert services on a broad range of audit and healthcare-related projects.
BRG professionals have extensive experience providing expert and strategic advisory services to law firms, private-sector corporations and public-sector bodies in the UK and around the world through the firm’s 42 offices. In London, BRG’s core practice areas include Disputes & Damages, Global Investigations + Strategic Intelligence, and advisory practices focused on the financial services, healthcare, construction, energy, telecommunications, media and technology industries.
Under the framework, BRG will focus on providing Audit services that will relate to investigations regarding bribery and corruption issues, fraud and financial irregularities, as well as compliance reviews, which will be led by BRG’s Forensic Accounting professionals, overseen by Managing Director Ben Johnson.
In the framework’s Health & Community lot, the firm’s Global Healthcare practice, led by Managing Directors Nabil Manzoor and Kevin Hamilton, will focus on delivering services relating to hospital and health system performance. Services will include advising on operational performance improvement, strategic advice on care models and markets, data analytics and business intelligence services, as well as advising on extending the NHS’s world-class healthcare into overseas markets.
Daniel Ryan, Managing Director and head of BRG’s London office, commented, "We are delighted to have been selected by the CCS and to have the opportunity to provide to government departments and the UK public sector services in which our experts lead the field. We welcome the move to ensure that this new framework enables a wider range of suppliers—in particular smaller, specialist expert firms—and to ensure that the UK’s public sector is receiving the best available advice at such a critical time for the country.
“Our selection for this framework is testament to the value that our unique combination of leading expert thinking and a focus on practical advice and implementation ensures."
