Scope received consultancy support through the IDP (Innovation Driven Procurement) project on the Readiness for Public Sector Framework procurement.
Scope was launched by two directors with a strategic plan to grow into a SME, providing construction services to the high-end residential, commercial, and development markets. The company continues to go from strength-to-strength, delivering high quality schemes and developments, providing clients with bespoke, professional services delivered on time, on budget and to the highest quality, working collaboratively with teams to achieve their desired outcomes.
The IDP challenge supported Scope’s business plan to be ready for Public Sector Frameworks in terms of compliance with the newly adopted Common Assessment Standard (CAS) (replacing PAS 91) as well as enabling Scope to capitalise on the new Government Procurement rules aimed at presenting more opportunity to SMEs. It was supported by Head of Business Development Strategic Partnership, Glenn Slater.
Through the IDP project Scope received consultancy support from Kate van der Sluis of Humber HR People, experts in HR, whose mission is to change the perception of HR and offer a range of services that recognise and celebrate the fact that people are fundamental to business success.
Through the consultancy Scope undertook a compliance audit and improvement plan; worked through creating the right culture for public sector work winning; recruitment and onboarding; and people management.
Benefits from the IDP project for Scope was the ability to get the best performance from their people so that it directly enhances contract delivery. The innovation for Scope is the ability to do things differently so that performance and delivery can be improved.
Glenn told us how the IDP project has helped Scope.
“The consultancy support enabled a HR expert to undertake a full review and audit of our company documentation and policies, which has helped us to identify gaps and updates. We would like to thank Kate for making available to us branded documents, ready for us to implement across our business. The process has been quick and easy – and we are now set to implement our improvement plan. Already Scope has benefitted from the support by being able to fully complete a pre-qualification tender (PQQ) and gaining some work. This was due to us having identified the need to have a Modern Slavery Statement, and process, which is fully implemented.”
