Sharpe Pritchard to advise Hertfordshire on Shared Managed Services
Sharpe Pritchard is delighted to have been appointed as external legal adviser to Hertfordshire County Council’s Shared Managed Service project. The project will involve the procurement of both a service contract for the County Council itself as well as a framework agreement offering similar services to the district and borough councils in Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire already has an impressive record of successfully outsourcing transactional and back-office corporate services. It is now seeking to derive further efficiencies through procuring a strategic private sector partner to deliver a greater depth and range of these services. As the new contracts need to dovetail with the end of the current ones, Hertfordshire was looking for an external legal adviser that had a track record in delivering high quality specialist projects to finite timescales.
Julia Rudin, Partner said: “We are delighted to be have been appointed as external legal adviser to the Hertfordshire Shared Managed Service Project. Alongside PFI and BSF, shared services is one of our Project Team’s core areas of expertise. We look forward to working with Hertfordshire on this exciting and innovative project”.
The core project team will consist of Julia, Tim Farr, Senior Solicitor and Gemma Duncan, Assistant Solicitor.
