Supplier Contract & Service Management Insurance Broker (UK)

Client Challenge

One of UK’s largest independent Insurance Brokers needed to review its Contractual Obligations and Service Level Agreements to verify and compare Service Delivery against actual performance. ​

The focus was to assess the current and historic performance through their Supplier Relationship Management “SRM” Framework, including: assessing if supplier relationships were being proactively managed and delivering value.​

The client engaged TORI to undertake a current state assessment incorporating:​

  1. A review of supplier activities and accountabilities for the service integration and management of the IT estate​
  2. A current state analysis of contracts and actual service performance​
  3. An end-to-end review of the contract and existing Management Information, (aligned to the existing SLAs/KPIs) establishing gaps and issues against the obligations of the service provider
