Set to work
Step 1 – Get in touch
If your client or SCAPE has referred you to us regarding a specific commission, please get in touch with your local Principal Regional Lead. If you are interested in joining our supply chain, please contact Nigel McCarthy to arrange an introduction. We’ll answer any questions you might have about Perfect Circle and ensure you have a full understanding of us and the framework – including our delivery model and contracting arrangements.
Step 2 – Register with us
You will be invited to register your business via our PAS91 aligned pre-qualification process. Once your information has been verified and you are confirmed as an approved supplier, you are eligible to deliver Core and Non Core Services via the SCAPE Consultancy framework. You will also be visible on Engage Portal, our collaborative platform, for selection by regional teams on commissions.
Step 3 – Set to work
Our teams will produce a Service Request Proposal (SRP) for the client incorporating your service fees. Once the client has approved the SRP, we will complete all the contract documentation. At Perfect Circle, we will enter the contract with the client using the framework template delivery agreement and provide you with your sub-consultancy contract.
Step 4 – Deliver
Our team will manage the commission through to financial completion and the involvement of any suppliers, ensuring compliance with any project key performance indicators and wider framework governance.
Step 5 – Evaluate
We will evaluate and review each commission subsequent to completion, to provide all parties the forum to share best practice and constructive feedback. This also provides an opportunity to explore prospects and identify pipeline of work. Contact our development director, Nigel McCarthy, to discuss how you can collaborate further with Perfect Circle and its Partners and to explore client and commission opportunities.
