Analysis and Reconciliation

Invoicing errors can cost businesses tens of thousands of pounds, but identifying these mistakes retrospectively can be difficult and it often takes a third party with specialist auditing expertise to spot them.

To help support NHS Trusts in identifying such errors and claiming back money which would otherwise be lost, the NHS Commercial Alliance developed a comprehensive Analysis and Reconciliation Framework Agreement to enable Trusts to appoint specialist firms to do this work for them on a no-win, no-fee basis.

The new framework is open to all Trusts served by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (CPP), which is a strategic partnership between the Hub, NHS Commercial Solutions the NHS London Procurement Partnership and the North of England Collaborative Procurement Partnership.

This framework has seven lots:

  • Lot 1: Telecommunications
  • Lot 2: Energy - Electricity and Gas
  • Lot 3: Water
  • Lot 4: Value Added Tax
  • Lot 5: Estates
  • Lot 6: Accounts Payable
  • Lot 7: Temporary Staffing
