GROUNDCARE SERVICE REVIEW                                                                     SANDWELL METROPOLITAN BOROUGH COUNCIL

This project involved the following*:
  • benchmarked for value for money for the Groundcare Service (Grounds Maintenance + Street Cleansing)
  • interviewed senior and operational managers
  • interviewed frontline staff and Trade Union representatives
  • carried out on-site reality checks
  • assessed operational management capacity and capability
  • assessed 7 procurement options and recommended outsourcing
  • carried out a Soft Market Sounding to assess the state of the market
  • advised the Council on the most attractive bundle of services to offer to market
  • identified more than £1 million per year in savings
The Council acted on these findings and has since fully outsourced the Waste Collection and Street Cleansing services.

* NB: This project was carried out whilst working for Capita Advisory Services
