Procurement consultant Charlie Middleton, explains in a LinkedIn article “The shocking truth about CCS Management Consultancy Framework lot 1.” Its cancellation has been the source of much debate following new documents released under the Freedom of Information Act. “Following the evaluation the “Big 6” suppliers were unsuccessful and so despite having 17 other large firms (and 13 SMEs) who were successful and having achieved a 6% reduction in day rates, CCS conspired to cancel the lot to ensure their friends in the big firms had a route to market.” His full commentary can be read here. Perhaps CCS were not necessarily being favourable to the Big 6 – but protecting their own revenue stream!
