Committed to the right solution
Contestability is about people, not funding or assets. Deloitte is committed to delivering the right solutions throughout the contestability life cycle covering; feasibility and policy, business case, procurement, operations, divestment or reinvestment.
Reshaping the size of government to ensure it is providing the public with the best possible solution at the best possible price is critical. At the core, is the idea that services exist to help people and society. Deloitte is committed to co-creating the right solution with you across the contestability lifecycle.
Feasibility and policy
Conducting effective feasibility and policy reviews ensures decisions made are well-informed and strategic. Designing the right solution instils confidence and reflects the potential financial returns and service benefits for organisations and their community.
Evaluating the reasons for contestability involves looking at all the options to demonstrate how it aligns to policy. Developing the right solution takes into consideration the procurement and operation processes for the successful delivery of contestability.
Securing effective procurement processes helps to drive the right solution. At this stage, proposals become real projects and the objective is to achieve greater value-for-money outcomes by implementing smarter sourcing practices.
Delivering the service can be risky if the operator doesn’t deliver the outcomes needed. Achieving the right solution requires hands-on support by the operations team and strong governance controls.
Divestment or reinvestment
Contestability is a process, not an outcome. It is about testing the delivery of government services to ensure the best service delivery at the best price. It can be an iterative process and may require a review of the current framework and policies until the best solution is achieved.
