Public contracts, projects and funding

Our ambitious public contracts, projects and funding team understands that large scale projects require more than just great contracts. At the heart of all public sector business lies the way you manage relationships and deliver high quality services, within increasingly tight budgets.

We’re skilled at supporting you with robust and commercially focused contracts, risk-based advice and experience of delivering within a political climate.

At Browne Jacobson, our expertise of advising public sector clients on their largest, most complex and high profile projects, is built on a long standing relationship with all parts of government.

Over the last decade we’ve developed tools that allow us to manage large suites of project documents, ensuring a consistent and streamlined approach. We’ve built up an enviable reputation for combining technical expertise with practical application of project management tools.

We‘re proud to be founding members of the EM LawShare framework and part of the CCS legal services panel, as well as continuing to provide advice through the Welsh NPS framework.

We supply contracts based on all the major templates, including the Model Services Contract, and CCS framework call-off contract and schedules. When drafting contracts, we always take the current PPNs and the Sourcing Playbook guidance into account, as well as using our own carefully constructed templates to create bespoke terms and conditions.

We can also assist you with grant funding agreements in line with subsidy control and state aid.

Featured experience

A local authority

Acting for Folkestone and Hythe District Council on all aspects of Otterpool Park, a flagship garden town project with an estimated gross development value of £2.8bn. The new town, set to be developed on a 770-hectare site adjacent to the M20, has the long-term potential to deliver up to 10,000 new homes plus employment space that could support up to 8,000 jobs.

A local authority

Advising Oxford City Council on the world’s first transmission connected electric vehicle charging hub project. Once complete, the initiative – which is part-funded by the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – will be the country’s largest electric vehicle charging super hub and a significant step forward for the city in its drive to becoming carbon neutral.

A government body

Advised the Department of Health and Social Care on the sourcing and contracting of a new information management systems and services function – which underpins the Department’s core and critical information and management systems upon which many parts of the UK health service rely. We supported them throughout the contract building and ITT launch phase and worked closely with their subject matter experts to draft the complex service descriptions, service level regime, critical implementation plan and financial model.
