Helping you to build back better
As the UK emerges from COVID-19, the public sector faces the challenge of continuing to deliver vital, world-class services despite unprecedented pressure on resources – both human and financial.
If we’re going to rise to this challenge, all public sector organisations need to take steps now to ensure they manage every pound and every hour as effectively and efficiently as possible.
That means finding ways to save money, generate money and recover money within your own operations. But it also means considering social value obligations. Spent right, every pound in the public purse has the power to strengthen supply chains and help the UK economy recover.
At CCS we have a suite of relevant and robust Financial Services frameworks that will help you strike this difficult balance. Whether you’re a central government department or a small local charity, we can support you with:
- easy ways to make immediate cost savings
- ethical revenue and spend recovery services (debt and overpayments)
- achieving the best value, balanced with sustainability
- supporting supply chain cash flow
- helping to sustain local businesses
With every pound working as hard as it can, we can emerge stronger and thrive together in a post-COVID world.
Financial Services to help you save, generate and recover money
We’re here to offer practical ideas and solutions to help your organisation tackle the challenges that lie ahead. We’ve grouped together frameworks under three specific areas, designed to help you achieve your goals.
As public sector organisations continue to deal with financial issues arising from the pandemic, perhaps the immediate focus is on how to drive greater efficiency from every budget. These frameworks offer ideas and solutions that can help stretch budgets further.
Debt Management Services
Offers a range of debt management solutions to help identify customers in financial difficulty and develop a recovery strategy.
Procurement cards help you save time and money, as well as gain control, strengthen your supply chain and potentially earn rebates.
Leasing Advisory Services
Gives you access to specialist advice on leasing options, asset classes (types of assets) and saving initiatives.
After investigating how to make savings, the next logical step is to examine how you can generate extra revenue for your organisation. One simple way of doing that is through rebates – available with procurement cards.
Procurement cards can give you access to valuable rebates. They come in three forms – physical, virtual or lodged cards.
Now, more than ever, the need to maximise recoveries is crucial – whether it’s in the form of debt that is legitimately owed or erroneous payments to individuals and suppliers. However, there is the matter of striking the right balance. These frameworks will help you consider the fairest way to meet financial obligations, while being mindful of social responsibilities.
Debt Management Services
This range of services allows you to consider various options around recovery including analytics, collections, litigation and enforcement.
Spend Analysis and Recovery Services
Incorrect payments and charges can happen, but recovery is possible even years later, restoring valuable funds to your organisation.
Choose from a range of payment acceptance services. You can also take an overview of your end-to-end payment landscape with the help of specialist payment consultants.
