COVID-19 related consultancy support
We can help you access consultancy support during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We have received many offers of support from consultancy firms over the past week. We have also negotiated with others to encourage similar offers at this critical time. This means we have a range of pro-bono, at cost or discounted offers available to support you. These offers come from all of the large consultancies as well as many SMEs.
To use this service if you have a coronavirus (COVID-19) related consultancy need, please first of all ensure that you have followed your own internal process for signing off consultancy requirements.
You should then email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line COVID-19 URGENT PROCUREMENT.
In your email please provide a description of the support you need. We will then arrange a conversation with you so that we can match a suitable supplier to your requirement (subject to availability).
This is an important part of the process as we have negotiated a wide range of commercial deals and some suppliers will be better suited to your needs than others.
