University of Sussex

From contract monitoring and management to quality service audits and strategic reviews, Russell Partnership Consulting are proud to have worked in partnership with the University of Sussex for over 20 years.

During 2013, key project outcomes included consolidation of the campus catering portfolio, team restructuring, commercial modelling, supporting the £10m development and design of the central catering hub and outlying campus outlets, and successful delivery of two tenders for catering services.


Most recently Russell Partnership were commissioned to deliver a strategic review of catering services in 2022 and aid in master planning and strategy development for the future of the provision. RP then worked alongside the Sussex team to develop, implement, and evaluate a public tender process in 2023 to secure a new contract for catering services across retail, conferencing, delivered hospitality, and vending. The result being a notable improvement in the quality of provision under the new arrangement.
