Our professional advice teams help departments to achieve economies of scale. Savings accrue when OGC and departments work together to deliver cross-departmental workspace strategies based on the exploitation of government's collective bargaining strength.
By putting forward a comprehensive range of options and facilitating discussion, we can ensure that departments take strategic decisions in the full knowledge of the wider financial impact.
Collaborative Opportunities include:
