Gateley Global works with and for public sector organisations to deliver high-impact inward investment and market entry programmes and solutions. 

We understand the depth and breadth of services such organisations provide to their clients as well as the challenges they face to deliver on their targets. And so we provide our public sector clients with the expertise they need to deliver.

We provide support across the entire project or programme lifecycle in order to meet their inward investment, place promotion and international expansion objectives. From planning to programme management, delivery and impact analysis; we’re experts in maximising efficiency and creating value. 

How do we help public sector clients?

We are a market entry consultancy that supports our public sector clients in successfully delivering their trade and investment aspirations.

We do this through programme management, project delivery and creation of bespoke products tailored to our clients’ requirements. We have a team of experts that understand international expansion drivers, and we specialise in designing business support programmes that deliver value for both our public sector clients and the businesses they wish to support.

For our public sector clients, our ability to support private organisations directly with their expansion aspirations further multiplies the value generated by inward investment and market entry programmes.

Gateley Global offers a program of flexible services and regularly builds bespoke collaborative consortium teams to deliver public sector programmes and projects, through both programme management (PMO) and delivery functions to execute multiple workstreams. 

Our tailored solutions include, but are not limited to:

  • targeted lead generation
  • sector-focused accelerator programmes
  • market access programme competitions
  • inbound/ outbound trade missions (virtual/ physical)
  • in-market training sessions
  • programme management, managed service delivery and project-based work
  • social media marketing campaigns
  • investment agency specialist secondments
  • international partnership programmes
  • go global export support delivery programmes
  • in-market representation 
  • bespoke products

Support across the project lifecycle

We advise and add value throughout the project lifecycle, from programme inception to review.

1. We advise public sector organisations at programme inception

We can add value from the outset, assisting public sector clients with project inception and design.

We regularly advise on identifying key programme objectives and strategies to ensure the programme is set up for success from the start.

2. We advise public sector organisations on programme set-up

We advise and coach clients on setting specific and appropriate targets and deliverables, and with identifying KPIs. Our team can help put in place robust governance procedures and establish clearly-documented audit trails.

We are experts in running procurement exercises to appoint providers, including designing tender frameworks, evaluating bid documents and presentations, and awarding and negotiating contracts. We are also able to create and administer a contract management framework to ensure suppliers are meeting agreed performance standards.

We frequently oversee stakeholder management for internal and external stakeholders, ensuring that all parties are appropriately informed and engaged.

3. We advise public sector organisations on programme delivery

Gateley Global is able to assist with every facet of investment programme delivery such as:

  • acting as PMO, including managing the RAID log (tracking risks, actions, issues, and decisions);
  • managing the programme provider;
  • monitoring the budget, to ensure full fiscal allocation utilised while maximising value for money;
  • promoting the programme and profile raising;
  • shaping external messaging and maximising PR/ media opportunities;
  • dealing with any supplier issues, including performance management, terminating contracts, and appointing alternative suppliers; 
  • handling any disputes or litigious issues;
  • creating bespoke reports and dashboards (including support on appropriate platforms and technology) to efficiently demonstrate value delivery and creation to stakeholders;
  • leveraging our extensive experience to make recommendations to improve programme efficiency

4. We advise public sector organisations on programme review

We are able to analyse programme performance internally against identified objectives to determine the level of success and impact the project has generated. This includes taking forward any ‘lessons learned’ to help shape and improve the performance of future programmes.

We are experienced at instructing and liaising with independent third-party organisations who are able to review the impact of the programme as required by public sector governance guidelines.

Who do we help?

We understand the organisational challenges and delivery pressures facing public sector clients through decades of experience working for and across public sector organisations at the national, regional and local level (both in the UK and globally); our clients get support from people with directly relevant experience as they have done it before.

Our public sector clients include councils, LEPs, IPAs, economic development organisations, trade promotion agencies, embassies and consulates, and states and territories. Some of our recent engagements have seen us work with clients such as the UK Department for International Trade (DIT), Austrade, Investment New South Wales, Invest Western Switzerland, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) , and Cambridge City Council.
