Growth in Demand for CMC Partnership Services
It has come as no surprise that many of our customers have been forced to revisit their investment plans as a result of the changed economic circumstances. Programmes, projects and change initiatives are subject to close scrutiny and a number have been delayed or closed.
Naturally the need for external specialist support is also being questioned to a higher degree and there is more pressure than ever on capital budgets. At CMC we are focussing on the opportunity this offers us to demonstrate value for money. Our job is to provide talented, committed individuals and teams who deliver excellent work at competitive rates. We trust that if we do our job well, our customers will come to us when they need help.
CMC grew by 32% in 2008-2009 to achieve a turnover of £13.26m. We experienced strong demand from the transport and defence sectors and won a substantial e-procurement assignment with the Welsh Assembly Government. Consultant numbers have increased to 157, marking the transition of CMC from a small to a medium-size company.
Collaboration has been critical to CMC’s continued growth, as evidenced by our work with over 23 partner companies to deliver services to DVLA and other DfT Agencies under the DVLA ‘Master Vendor’ framework. We are working on collaborative arrangements with additional specialist suppliers to ensure that we have the capability, capacity and flexibility demanded by existing and new customers.
CMC Managing Director Brian Clancy said: "We are really proud of what we have been able to achieve. Our customers comment on the value for money we offer as well as how hard we work to achieve genuine benefits and sustainable improvement for them through change and development."
