- Relationships are at the centre of everything we do - including SUPPECO
Service continuity being paramount, our transition modelling practice ensures that individually, or collectively, third party agreements are assisted to transition seamlessly from one party to another; in parallel with contractually underpinned services, whether a change of supplier, transition to a new service recipient, or severing divestment.
Engaging with business and IT, we firstly establish current and future functional needs, processing and converting the data into category or tower components.
This information is invaluable in shaping negotiations, whilst also helping to identify post transition stranded cost, which invariably occurs through external service re-structure e.g. divestment or outsource.
We advise that supplier assurance be implemented as best practice; a critical undertaking prior to entering into contracted relationships with new service providers – as well as being reviewed periodically thereafter.
Supplier assurance may refer to some or all of the measures listed here, to ensure the existence and adherence to policy, such as environmental policy, code of conduct, corporate social responsibility. This may include checking statuary compliance with legislation such as the modern slavery act 2015 and certainly the general data protection regulations. It may also where relevant include audit assistance with verification of ISAE3402 SOC1 or SOC2 compliance.
In order to keep risk to our clients to a minimum it is vital to continually monitor previously approved suppliers. This requirement should be met by repeating supplier assessments on a periodic basis.
Retained Impact Analysis
Retained impacts typically occur from changes to contract landscape and consequently price break entitlement, normally through down-size, re-shape or demarcation of existing services.
A core output of transition modelling, that supports management and mitigation of commercial risk, associated with outsource or divestment related separations.
Volume Novation Separation
Volume separations come in a variety of dynamics. Larger managed service contracts will invariably conceal a number of 3rd party contracts, especially where infrastructure related services are involved.
Novation (replacing one participating party of a contract with another) may be sort to ensure continuity of strategic or critical services and relationships, or to maintain compliance with longer term corporate strategy.
