“The recommendations have the potential to turn what is at the moment a snapshot of current practice to one which enhances contracts management practices throughout the Russell Group and possibly beyond – a lasting legacy. Very many thanks for a job well done.”David Coombe, Director, Research Division London School of Economics

We were very happy with the value-for-money and professionalism of the work undertaken, and impressed by Rob’s in-depth understanding of the subject matter.
