Maritime and Coastguard Agency rescued from incorrect utility bills
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has enjoyed significant benefits since it contracted TEAM to validate its utility bills and make cost recoveries on its behalf.
TEAM Bureau has been processing and validating utility billing data for 388 of MCA’s sites throughout the UK since 2000. TEAM’s Sigma Software monitors the energy consumption at their Head Office in Southampton, 3 regional centres, 1 training centre, 2 Helicopter units and 18 Maritime and Rescue Coordination Centres that deal with emergency 999 calls for coastal rescue. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency subscribed to the TEAM utility billing validation and cost recovery service through the Buying Solutions Framework Agreement. This was more beneficial for them because it meant they didn’t have to go through a time consuming tender process.
Over a 12 month period, TEAM Bureau queried a total of 186 invoices on behalf of MCA, resulting in overall savings and cost preventions of £62,894.
Over the past 4 years the Agency has undertaken some changes in relation to Energy Management and TEAM has been able to adapt, which I think is crucial for any long term business relationship.
