The Montrose team prides itself on its detailed and current appreciation of clients’ priorities, operating styles, and contracting mechanisms. This allows us to provide not only a responsive and appropriate service, but also allows us to guarantee professional and fiscally responsible contract execution. As a result, Montrose has not only gained a reputation for rapid turnaround to client’s needs on direct contracts, but has also effectively managed a number of projects which require the contracting of local partners for sub-grants.
Montrose uses internationally-acknowledged good standards in project management. All Montrose contracts are delivered with a detailed and updated workplan (including detailed budget and Gantt chart); internal contract review mechanism and performance monitoring framework; communications plan; health, safety and security plan including a project specific risk register; etc. Wherever project implementation depends on the management of a number of local provider grants, Montrose follows international procurement best practice.
Specific services in this area include:
- Service provider scoping – including financial due diligence, assessment against national and international procurement regulations
- Country specific tax and legal compliance
- Consortium management at regional or national level
- Grant conditionality monitoring and review – including agreed targets and performance monitoring plans for sub-contractors
- Consultant identification – we maintain a broad selection of technical and operational consultants across our operational regions to ensure precise, technical and good value resourcing for all our projects.
