Alpine have been working with DEFRA since September 2003, providing interim managers to support crucial programmes. Recognising the need for cost efficiencies, Alpine undertook to reduce its fees by 50% in 2003, thereby enabling DEFRA to utilise these services, while simultaneously achieving cost savings of up to £222,000 in one year. Alpine has not reviewed this agreement since, despite consistently running interims for DEFRA (over 30 at one point) and has established an `open book’ policy with DEFRA (as we do with all clients). Alpine recognises the need to work closely with its clients and, in line with its corporate values of integrity and transparency, ensures that all DEFRA managers are aware of the Alpine fee margin and understand precisely what to expect from the relationship.

Similarly, our interims are aware of what we charge DEFRA and recognise that they receive 95% of the fee charged. Few, if any, suppliers can demonstrate such commitment, over a long term of heavily reduced margin, without compromising on the quality and sustainability of the service provided. We are proud to be so closely associated with DEFRA, to be recognised as a key provider to the department and to retain such a close and trusting relationship, whereby DEFRA knows it can rely on Alpine to do whatever is necessary to provide the service. It is estimated that, by reducing its fees, Alpine will have helped DEFRA to achieve almost £1million in savings over three years.
