Case Studies
A note from our Client

RM&C Consultants acted on behalf of this large state maintained secondary school in the whole procurement process in order to select and secure a contractor to provide catering for our 1,600 students and 270 staff. From our initial contact through until the mobilisation process RM&C consultants in general and our project manager in particular have been faultless. The two consultants that initially visited to assess our needs gave clear and robust advice on the types of contracts available, guided us through drawing up tender specifications and helped us to focus on our priorities and criteria.

The process has been transparent and robust, RM&C have ensured throughout that all EU rules and regulations have been adhered to but have maintained a very personal contact with us at the school. This company have a wealth of experience of the market place of school catering, the consultant that worked with us had personal experience of the field with technical and commercial knowledge as well as some well established contacts. I was however very impressed by his commitment to probity and fairness, ensuring that all of our choices were made without influence or bias.

The procurement process for our school was hindered by a fire in the school kitchen and the guidance of our consultant helped us to make decision to reschedule mid way through whilst he ensured that all interested parties were kept informed and that we did not suffer reputational damage.

I would not hesitate to recommend RM & C Consultants to any school reviewing, renewing or tendering a catering contract, I'm just disappointed that they are not also able to advise us on phone systems, print solutions and electronic sign in systems, all procurement projects that we could do with support in!
