BearingPoint and Hedra win Catalist multi-disciplinary consultancy framework agreement

The United Kingdom's OGCbuying.solutions, an Executive Agency of the Office of Government Commerce in the Treasury, has awarded BearingPoint and Hedra plc a framework agreement for one of a limited number of positions on the new Multi-Disciplinary Consultancy Catalist Framework. The award sees Hedra and BearingPoint work together as "Hedra BearingPoint" enabling the delivery of the products and services offered under the framework.

The framework includes multi-disciplinary, client-side advice to support the delivery of transformational programmes and projects. Together, BearingPoint and Hedra will provide Catalist Multi-Disciplinary Consultancy customers unparalleled scale and scope of services including strategy and organisational change, programme and project management, information and communications technology, human resources, procurement and finance. Additionally, the framework provides access to broader skills and disciplines that may be required by public service organisations.

BearingPoint and Hedra are both independent and not bound to specific solution providers. Unlike competitors, the firms do not focus on large-scale business process outsourcing, allowing them a position whereby they can consult and advise in an independent and impartial manner. Public sector work accounts for a substantial percentages of each organisation's individual revenues, and both firms have a deep understanding of issues in the UK public sector through involvement in strategic initiatives including the Gershon, Hampton and Lyons Reviews.

Speaking of the appointment, Paul Toner, senior vice president and Head of the UK for BearingPoint, commented: "We have a flexible approach and at all times seek to work in partnership with our clients in order to get the job done. Why reinvent the wheel when we can work with the client to harness their existing skills base and augment work that has already been completed? We simply seek to maximise potential and facilitate success."

Stephen Farrell, executive director of Hedra plc, commented: "We are delighted to be working with BearingPoint. Hedra is already one of the providers of Specialist Solutions and consulting services through Catalist. This success not only preserves that position, but also brings new major solutions opportunities with BearingPoint to help fuel our continued growth."
