Hannah Bennett, marketing executive at Audit Partnership, the latest named supplier on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS’s) Spend Analysis and Recovery Services II framework, provides an insight into spend recovery and the resulting benefits.

If your organisation is one of the many now considering appointing a provider through the new Spend Analysis and Recovery Services II framework, RM3820, you may be reassured that the industry has a provider who champions transparency and has a track record of improving supplier relationships while delivering record spend recoveries.

Audit Partnership has been quietly shaking up the spend recovery sector since its launch in 2002. Our experienced team of recovery specialists has been amassed throughout the company’s continued growth. That is perhaps why it provides such a fresh alternative to other providers in the sector.

A spend recovery audit has multiple benefits. The focus tends to fall on historic returns, which are an obvious boost to for any organisation, but an audit will also provide insightful spend analysis aimed at improving an organisation’s financial performance and minimising risk, alongside informing process improvements to benefit the organisation in the long term.

Audit Partnership’s thorough audit team has recovered millions for the public sector. They modestly attribute their success to their three core values: ‘people-focus,’ ‘partnership approach’ and ‘progressive mindset.’

James Cook, the company’s director, explained: “People are the most critical aspect of any work which Audit Partnership performs. In-depth data analysis can generate significant claims, but more often than not it is experience, talent and human intuition which enable us to uncover the claims systems can miss.”

Our clients benefit from full audit transparency, every step of the way, in addition to larger teams attributed to their audit than any other provider. Audit Partnership takes the time to understand its client’s culture and needs, adapting to their requirements and time frames to ensure that it provides a fully tailored service that maximises return. Its strong bonds with each client are as a result of its honesty, integrity and drive to deliver results consistently.

Every aspect of Audit Partnership’s operation is constantly reviewed in line with its progressive mindset, to establish improvements and discover new ways in which it can provide clients with the best level of service. The team develop bespoke and industry-leading IT, ensuring they are self-reliant and always ahead of the curve.

“We are not content with standing still, and constantly seek opportunities to challenge the status quo in order to offer our clients the most up-to-date service provision,” said Richard Jackson, audit director at Audit Partnership.

Having never lost a client, in such a competitive climate, this is a testament to how the team deliver an unrivalled service and build genuine, meaningful relationships with clients. Now as a named supplier on the CCS’s Spend Analysis and Recovery Services II framework, procurement managers in the public sector can easily access Audit Partnership’s specialist services and benefit from its inspired approach.
