The Project

Preparations for EU-exit caused significant change within Government at every level. It was a period of great change and transformation across the board, often provoking public and media attention.

The Approach

To prepare for this period of change, RPS were appointed by a Central Government department to set up and deliver an EU Exit Emergency Operations Centre.

The Emergency Centre was set up to handle questions, queries and high profile cases that may arise as a result of EU Exit. Available between the hours of 7a.m to 10 p.m, the centre was primarily operated by RPS consultants with specific skills in assimilating and assessing large amounts of information, preparing and delivering briefings for both internal and external consumption, up to and including ministerial and national media level.

RPS was appointed to operate this service on behalf of the Central Government department following a robust procurement with the contract being awarded through the YPO framework, which can be used by any Government Department.

The Outcome

From contract award in December 2018, we stood up a team of security cleared consultants, undertaking training and in some cases security clearance, ready for the Emergency Operations Centre to go live as planned on 22 March 2019.

Many other government departments were facing similar challenges that need to be addressed quickly as they arose. The team at RPS has experience of setting up, resourcing and operating such a service and is able to meet testing timescales, often having consultants available within days of a need being identified.

In addition to our work with this department, RPS were awarded a place as consultancy provider for the Cabinet Office, after receiving the highest score during the provider bidding process. This appointment saw RPS provide programme delivery consultancy to a number of government departments impacted by the UK exiting the EU.
