Some things you might not be set up to deliver
Have to juggle both strategy and delivery
Risk is on you if team fails to deliver
Can be helpful if the scheme manager is an NSI
Can cope with large scale
Minimum standards can be set
No extra costs

Tender process can be seen as ‘unfair’ and hard to judge true value
Tender might contain missing elements
Be specific, eg min. hours of on-road training for L2
