Origination and Procurement

The private sector plays a vital role in supporting the state to deliver public services. Flint works with investor and corporate clients facing opportunities and challenges concerning government or regulator decisions on the award of public sector funding, contracts or franchises – as well as those negotiating the terms of official sector support.

Political considerations increasingly inform decisions on state support to companies, on the distribution of franchises and contracts, and the terms on which these are carried out.

The pandemic has exacerbated this. The role of the state has expanded significantly to meet the needs of the economy. As the economic recovery starts, the Government will maintain this expanded role. 

Flint’s help to investor and corporate clients includes:

  • Influencing the shape of ongoing financing support: As we move into the post-Covid recovery phase, we help clients to identify their specific needs and the levers they can pull within government to shape the next phase, to deliver funding or policy change that supports their business.
  • Awarding of major public sector franchises or contracts: Covid-19 will influence the approach to awarding public contracts and franchises. We help clients understand how this changes their strategy, from their detailed proposition through to the wider policy, political and public engagement needed to secure the contract or franchise.
  • Managing existing franchises or contracts: External developments can change the commercials of an existing franchise or contract. We help clients to engage with government and regulatory stakeholders to mitigate the financial impact or to capitalise on opportunities for additional commercial benefit.
