Analysis and Reconciliation Services (Ref: 2020/S 062-149927)


The East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub introduces an enhanced Analysis and Reconciliation framework to replace the expired contract. This framework aims to facilitate retrospective analytical reviews for core spend and transactions, leading to the identification and recovery of overpayments.

The Analysis and Reconciliation framework provides user organisations with a legally compliant route to market. The refreshed framework comprises 11 lots covering a diverse range of specialist auditing services including Telecoms, Energy, Water, VAT, Estates, Accounts Payable, Temporary Staffing, Payroll, Contract Compliance, Software License Renews, and Managed Spend Reduction and Recovery Solutions. Each lot targets specific issues, offering user organisations a legally compliant route to market and the opportunity for process improvement and cost reduction.


  • All suppliers operate on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, so the contracting organisation only pays a pre-agreed percentage fee of the money recovered
  • Contracting organisations can call-off directly with any of the suppliers appointed on the framework at pre-determined framework rates or run a further competition inviting all suppliers within t
  • The framework is designed to be resource-light, requiring very little time and involvement from the contracting organisation
  • Suppliers take full responsibility for recovering any overpayments
  • Organisations that have undertaken reviews in the past may undertake future reviews to maximise potential opportunities
  • Services may be undertaken remotely, so suppliers can begin audits without physical access to trust premises
  • The framework is fully compliant with EU procurement regulations, with consistent terms and conditions
