In our recent project, we partnered with the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to address significant capability gaps within their delivery plan. These gaps were identified for the upcoming procurement of a cloud-based system (PMRV) and the National Kyoto Protocol Registry IT System. Additionally, BEIS recognised a need for enhanced support in the Policy Communications and Stakeholder Engagement workstreams across several teams, including Hydrogen Business Support, Industrial Strategy, and Decarbonisation.

To augment their existing delivery team, BEIS sought a supplier capable of providing swift access to appropriately security-cleared resources across multiple disciplines. Their traditional approach to engaging resource providers was proving cumbersome, and the recruitment of permanent staff was time-consuming and restrictive, offering limited skill availability within the department.

We at BetterGov met with the Deputy Director of Industrial Energy at BEIS and developed a cost-effective, time-efficient, and sustainable solution. Through a competitive tender process via the CCS Digital Marketplace, we were appointed as the chosen supplier to provide specialist resources. Our proposal enabled BEIS to procure our services through an approved framework under an overarching agreement, which allowed for flexible capability utilisation and swift access to both technical and non-technical specialist capabilities.

Our team was able to deploy consultants on-site within two weeks of contract signature, addressing the immediate need for key expertise and staying within budget. Operating as a single, reliable, and responsive supplier, we significantly reduced the supplier management effort required by BEIS staff. This allowed them to dedicate more time to business-critical tasks. Furthermore, after the initial deployment, we worked strategically with BEIS to manage pipeline skill demand and identify opportunities for upskilling and knowledge transfer to civil servants involved in the programmes.

This partnership not only filled the critical capability gaps identified by BEIS but also provided them with a transparent, controlled cost model, a flexible and scalable solution, and swift access to specialist capabilities. Our collaboration underscored our commitment to delivering digitally driven and socially empowered solutions, reinforcing our reputation for professionalism, proactiveness, and a deep commitment to our clients’ best interests.
