Mason Advisory Awarded £3.7m Government Contract




Mason Advisory Awarded £3.7m Government Contract

A MediaCityUK-based company has been selected by the Home Office Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) directorate to support the delivery of a new Strategic Operating Model (SOM).

 

Mason Advisory, a leading provider of IT Consultancy and Advisory Services, has been tasked with supporting and enabling DDaT to deliver flexibly against changing priorities using a coherent and informed governance approach, and build on existing capabilities developing a strong brand and reputation for efficient and effective delivery.

 

Mason Advisory, recently listed in the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report, was selected from more than 50 applicants as the preferred partner to deliver the £3.7m contract across a two-year period.

 

“The ability to combine all of the workstreams that form a successful transformation rests heavily on understanding the human side of business change”, notes Duncan Swan, Managing Director – Public Sector at Mason Advisory.  “And that really does play to our core strengths at Mason Advisory.  Of course, we’re delighted to have been given this opportunity to help the Home Office transform its delivery capabilities – more than that, we’re already enjoying our initial interactions with the Home Office team and share a common goal of ensuring the Strategic Operating Model for DDaT is delivered successfully.  It really matters; it is core to achieving the value for money outcomes we all expect Government”.

 

The engagement will see Mason Advisory working with DDaT programme team to commission, assure and support a programme of change across the merged Home Office Digital and Home Office Technology functions. The implementation of the SOM aims to improve value for money, ensure effective delivery of customer needs and improve organisational effectiveness. The engagement will require Mason Advisory to coordinate across the initiatives and engage with senior DDaT stakeholders including the Chief DDaT Officer and her senior management team.

 

Mason Advisory was selected from 51 applicants based on its extensive experience in supporting the delivery of multi-workstream programmes for complex organisations, such as central government departments, its proficiency in implementing organisation design, its excellent business change and communication skills, as well as its understanding of complex stakeholder environments and its familiarity in working closely with senior leaders.

 

Now in its fifth year of operation, Mason Advisory has customers from well-known brands across multiple sectors, including finance, life sciences, retail, FMCG, emergency services, health, energy, water, education, government and transport. Last month, the company was featured in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019 and earlier this year was recognised by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and one of the leading management consultancies in the UK. It was awarded the Queen’s award for Enterprise in the international trade category and was also recognised by Great Place to Work ® as a centre of Excellence in Wellbeing.

 

“Over the last five years the Mason Advisory brand has become synonymous with the delivery of high-quality consultancy in challenging environments. The skill and expertise of our specialist consultants means that we are able to provide intelligent solutions to complex business challenges time and time again,” continued Swan. “This latest Government contract comes on the back of a successful year for the company delivering projects for high-profile clients and receiving industry recognition. We hope to continue this success over the coming months and take the company from strength to strength.”
