Reduced process cycle time by 50%

Increased compliance & assurance

The project was moving so slow and and getting no traction before Olivia [CI Projects] came in to drive this.

Define it

Gov Facility Services Ltd (GFSL), a new organisation formed after Carillion’s collapse, inherited legacy suppliers without pre-qualification checks. This posed a compliance risk as supplier accreditations and qualifications were unknown. CI Projects was brought in to mitigate this risk by establishing a supplier onboarding process and to improve overall supply chain management. Our first step was to define and prioritise the tasks and suppliers.

Improve it

We took a 3-step approach to establish a robust and compliant supply chain management process:

  • Prioritise: Developed achievable goals and prioritised high-risk suppliers for review.
  • Streamline: Leveraged existing accreditations like ConstructionLine Gold to expedite internal reviews.
  • Standardise: Implemented a Scrum-based review approach with documented workflows and ongoing support.

Sustain it

We develop an automated Management Information (MI) dashboard for progress reporting and risk management, enabling GFSL to gain confidence in the qualifications of approved suppliers.
