Genuine partnerships, better value

The thematic areas that form the basis of CLEAR Futures have the potential - both individually and, more importantly, collectively - to create step-changes in public sector service performance in ways not previously envisaged.

The range and diversity of projects and services that can be procured under CLEAR Futures reflect the Participants' requirement and preference: To work with a strategic partner to actively identify and scope a programme of the projects and services needed to deliver its vision and objectives. CLEAR Futures has the flexibility to deliver outcomes using a wide range of routes to market, contractual forms, commercial arrangements and sources of funding.

CLEAR Futures delivers real value to Participants who have a strategic desire and commitment to look beyond immediate capital planning horizons, and recognises the overall savings that can be achieved through whole-life thinking. These Participant wants a single trusted partner to ensure these savings materialise and are not lost through multiple procurement partners.

Strategic development

CLEAR Futures deliver a structured and focused Stage 0 process that enables Participants to draw upon a wide range of specialist strategic and technical expertise. The Stage 0 approach allows Participants to better understand its major challenges, shape and test potential options for meeting these challenges, prioritising effort and resource on those projects that can have the most profound impact, and ultimately develop project and service briefs against which to procure.

The project development process

The CLEAR Futures project development process is based on that of the highly successful Scottish hub programme and reflects the learning experiences of the CSF JV partners. A structured stage gate process enables projects to be developed in an expedient and controlled manner, which keeps the Participant in control. Decision-making at each stage allows all parties to either move forward with increased certainty or to stop and reflect.

The project development process is project-managed by a high quality, experienced CSF team and adopts a robust approach to risk management.

The stage gate development process is shown in the summary diagram below:
