iMPOWER wins major Edinburgh strategic partnering contract

July 31, 2010

iMPOWER, in partnership with Eversheds LLP, has recently been appointed as advisors to the City of Edinburgh Council Alternative Business Models (ABM) Programme. ABM aims to establish new service delivery partnerships for a range of council functions to be procured through competitive dialogue. The iMPOWER and Eversheds role will be to provide financial, legal, programme/project management, business analysis and procurement support to financial close in 2011. In addition, the mandate provides for the provision of additional advisory services as needed. With more than £100m of services in scope, the final value of the possible partnerships could exceed £1bn over a ten year period, making ABM one of the largest procurements in UK local government.

Andrew Unsworth, director of the Alternative Business Models (ABM) Programme said:

“The City of Edinburgh Council is delighted to be working with iMPOWER on this major initiative. iMPOWER’s significant business expertise and experience will complement the council’s own skills and this will be invaluable as the programme progresses”.

Alex Khaldi, the iMPOWER Director leading the project added:

“We are delighted to be given the mandate to support the City of Edinburgh Council. The appointment reinforces our market leading position in client side advisory support, and speaks volumes for our deep experience and client relationship values. More importantly, it gives us the opportunity to help the council create major benefits for citizens of Edinburgh. ABM has the potential to help the City maintain frontline services in an era of financial constraint – this is an agenda iMPOWER is passionate about supporting”.
