A new supplier has been announced and appointed to help deliver commercial services as part of the UK Government’s 40 new hospitals across England by 2030.
KPMG, working in partnership with Arcadis, Arup and Gardiner & Theobald, has been appointed as the New Hospital Programme’s Interim Commercial Partner (ICP) following a collaborative procurement event with the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and a competition from the range of providers offering management consultancy services to Government under a pre-agreed procurement framework.
KPMG is supporting the programme for the next 12-18 months, until a long-term Commercial Partner is appointed, with the procurement planned to start in Spring 2022. As the ICP, KPMG will be an integral part of the programme’s commercial function, delivering services including cost estimating, commercial modelling, post-contract management and procurement support.
New Hospital Programme Commercial Director Emma-Jane Houghton said: “The appointment of KPMG, in partnership with Arcadis, Arup and Gardiner & Theobald, as our Interim Commercial Partner, is an important step for the greatest hospital building programme in a generation.
“KPMG will provide vital commercial support to the New Hospital Programme over the coming months, as our plans to build 40 new hospitals by 2030 continue at pace and remain on track.”
The appointment of an expert commercial partner with experience of large-scale projects will ensure the programme is, at every stage, delivering value for money for the taxpayer.
