Once you’ve won the contract just as much attention is needed to communication, including monitoring. Getting delivery right will include attention to the details of the contract and the bigger picture.
When a particular outcome is intended, everyone needs to be clear on the research, policy and practice that best support the process.
Share a plan for who needs to know what, and how you’re all going to get the best profile from the successes you have.
Firstly, establish what is essential and what is negotiable. And if there are potentially conflicting intentions, which trumps the other?
Commissioners will be monitoring and managing the contract. The procurement team is not involved at this stage.
