Project support consultants (ROSS Framework)

We sometimes commission project consultants from our Register of Support Services (known as ROSS Consultants) to help heritage organisations deliver larger projects successfully.

We have an approved register of consultants, split into four areas of expertise:

  1. construction project management
  2. business development and management
  3. public engagement with heritage
  4. natural environment 

We deploy the consultants on some projects to provide monitoring, mentoring and expert advice services across all key steps of our grant life-cycle. 

The consultants are appointed to our ROSS Framework via a tendering process. The current framework started on 1 April 2018 and runs for four years with an option for us to extend it by a further two years. 

We also have a framework for ROSS Consultants specialising in digital heritage. This framework started on 1 April 2018 for two years with the option to extend for a further two years.
