About P1 Consulting

Outsourcing Arrangements

Public Sector Outsourcing

P1 Consulting understands the distinctive nature of public sector procurement processes, and we apply that expertise and experience to our advisory work in facilities management. For example, we understand that the following should be considered for public sector outsourcing arrangements:

  • Multiple, varied public stakeholders involved
  • Fair, open and transparent procurement process
  • Unique requirements of government facilities (e.g. areas that are public facing and areas that are secure)

We have developed facilities management solutions for a variety of asset classes, including:

  • Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities
  • Transit Facilities
  • Courthouses
  • Detention Centres
  • Data Centres
  • Police Service Stations
  • Secure Federal Facilities
  • Broadcasting Centres
  • Airports
  • Recreational Facilities
  • Entertainment Centres

Public Private Partnerships

To date, P1 Consulting has been engaged on over 30 public-private partnership projects as the Operations/Facilities Management Advisor in a range of capacities (often performing all of the following), including:

  • Developing options analyses with respect to a service delivery approach
  • Contributing to and developed business cases and feasibility studies
  • Acting as technical advisor who works with the project team to develop operational output specifications based on relevant facility service levels and project objectives
  • Acting as subject matter experts and as evaluators in P3 RFQ and RFP evaluations
  • Participating in the operational/implementation phase as the owner’s advisor on contract implementation and management

The P3 industry is constantly evolving, and P1 Consulting is often engaged to advise on template changes and value enhancements related to the approach to various facilities management arrangements. We have developed creative solutions to complex problems that have been market tested and accepted.

Other Outsourcing Arrangements

Given our involvement in private sector corporate real estate, we have been able to contribute to unique public sector projects that are not P3s, but are subject to the unique requirements of public facilities. We are able to integrate our expertise related to the facilities management industry in both the public and private sectors to ensure that owner’s end up with an arrangement that meets their objectives.
