The Orange Partnership - Taking the pain out of cost reimbursable and target cost construction contracts
We know that our clients want smooth running and successful contracts and to:
Never be surprised by unexpected commercial issues
Avoid the reputational damage and anxiety of being associated with a difficult or failing project
Remove the risk of having to go back to stakeholders and ask for more money due to overspends
Eliminate the stress, expense and wasted time arising from disputes
They need to be confident that they are:
Receiving value for their spend
Not being exposed to unnecessary risks
Not heading for an avoidable dispute.
Over the past ten years we have provided advice and support on £55billion of cost reimbursable and target cost contracts, helping our clients to recover more than £100million in overcharges and paying for ourselves, on average, ten times over. Using our unique concentration of expertise we bring confidence and transparency to our clients that:
Overcharges are being prevented and recovered
Unnecessary commercial risks are identified and addressed
The potential for dispute is recognised and dealt with
Clients can rely on our advice as we are independent. We don't work for contractors or for other consultancies and can express our opinions free from any constraints driven by conflicts of interest.
To find out how we can help you to avoid the pain of overcharges, unecessary commercial risks and preventable disputes, call us now on 020 8898 6447.

There is no such thing as mutual trust?
A psychologist friend of mine once explained to me that trust is a personal thing. Some people are naturally very trusting and others are naturally suspicious and wary. This makes the concept of, “mutual trust” a problem.
I’m an auditor, and by nature and professional training I am sceptical. You might trust me completely and without question, but that trust will not be mutual.

Due diligence is an excellent means of making sure all parties to a partnership or alliance know where they stand and to set the tone for future commercial engagement.
