Credera led a procurement programme to replace the legacy application and maintenance contract with a strategic one. This strategic contract, which was based on government model services contracts, reduced operating costs by 70% from day one, waived contract exit costs, and underpinned the Agency’s IT transformation agenda for the next five years.
Unprecedented circumstances required a trusted consultancy partner.
The MHRA set a digital transformation agenda to better support the regulation of medicines, medical devices, and blood components for transfusion in the UK.
Credera partnered with the MHRA to deliver the Application Outsourcing Transition (AOT) project in 2020 to support this agenda, right when the MHRA were responding to the Covid-19 pandemic with responsibility for vaccine approvals.
Shaping, designing, and executing the procurement and contracting process.
Based on UK Government’s recommendations, we provided independent, client-side delivery leadership across programme management, procurement, and contracting. We helped the MHRA draft the strategic case for change, before developing the outline business case and engaging the supplier market on behalf of MHRA. We then completed the procurement, helping to build the final business case before awarding the contract and completing service transition.
