Price Investigation Technical Support to CAAS

Client Challenge

The Test Project Team in DE&S had received two significant proposals from QinetiQ to offer significant savings on delivering test pilot training and air ranges update over the next 12 years. CAAS were requested to investigate these proposed savings and provide comment and an assessment of their independent view on the level of real savings.

Our Role

Apacheix supported CAAS by conducting a detailed investigation of the requirement, the proposals and the cost models used. We led engagement with various stakeholders within QinetiQ, followed by detailed information requests and subsequent analysis of the cost sensitivity provided by the level of modelling for each intervention. A detailed brief was provided to the Commercial Director within Test PT to allow advanced negotiations to be conducted. Major issues were identified and quantified within the brief.

Our Performance

Commended for a rapid turnaround of the investigation when faced with significant time constraints.
