Radford Chancellor LTD reviewed the catering departments at a number of special schools within Essex County Council area. The schools cater for children aged 3 - 19 years with severe or profound learning difficulties. They may also have learning needs within the Autistic Spectrum.
During our review we looked at all areas of the catering departments including:
We provided the stakeholders within the schools a detailed report with an "Options Appraisal" and clear recommendations for change and the way forward. The consultancy also managed the procurement and tender process for the appointment of a new catering company. During the tender process we advised our client on the "OJEU" E.U. procurement rules, T.U.P.E and prepared a Service Speciation and Contracts for the new service. We also supported our client as required with appointment meetings and start up of the new contract.
