Consulting at all levels of the company

Nowadays, consulting services (legal advice, strategy advice, audit, training, etc.) concern all the departments of a company, from general management to human resources management, including financial, legal and even the communications management.

This trend reflects a profound transformation of our working methods and legitimizes the interest that procurement departments have in this category.  The financial challenges are significant and the volume of expenditure is constantly increasing.

The support of EPSA Operations & Procurement covers all the critical phases in deciding upon and choosing consulting service providers. It aims for the most efficient choices, from the analysis of the existing situation to the implementation, including the identification of areas for improvement.

Our teams are able to support you on all of your projects (IT projects or Legal components, insurance or statutory audit …) according to your needs.
