Project: European Tender Strategy and execution of Competitive Dialogue of all Infrastructure Services
Challenge & Client Value: Client was faced with a requirement to retender the IT infrastructure services at that time delivered by two separate service providers in a staffing approach. Whitebridge supported the client in determining the right scope, market approach and European Tender procedure. Subsequently the client asked Whitebridge to support European Tender procedure. The project was successfully completed, and enabled the client to close a deal with an innovative service provider and unexpected cost savings.
Approach: Whitebridge delivered the results by driving the project for the client end to end with a mixed team covering all necessary aspects, including the legal aspects and European Tender procedural support:
