JIGSAW wins public sector framework contract

Government departments recognise value of independent OR consultants

JIGSAW has recently been awarded a framework contract with the Home Office and Ministry of Justice to provide operational research services and analytic support for offender management and sentencing. The framework is approved by OGC Buying Solutions, and can also be used by any public sector organisation in the UK as a quick, easy and cost effective alternative to OJEU procurement.

Colin Elwood of Dweomer Consultants, who led the JIGSAW bid team, said    “OR has the potential to save the taxpayer millions by making better use of limited resources. We are delighted that after a very thorough evaluation, the Science and Research Group procurement team has recognised that our consortium of independent consulting businesses offers valuable expertise without the overheads of larger organisations. We look forward to helping the government do more with less!


JIGSAW is a consortium of experienced, independent management consultants specialising in Operational Research. JIGSAW’s team of consultants has worked successfully with a range of government departments, agencies and private sector organisations, applying a variety of analysis and modelling techniques to support evidence based policy and decision making.
