Market Testing

Working closely with the client’s management team Opex prepared comprehensive tender documents and issued these to the market’s leading providers for the hospital market testing. On receipt of the tenders and working within a bespoke tender process and evaluation matrix, the tenders were assessed and after clarifications, recommendations were made for companies to present their proposals, prior to the appointment of the new supplier. The service provider was appointed in June 2012, some 3 months after appointment.
