Pitcher Partners supports the Metropolitan Mobile Radio (MMR) upgrade project

May 30, 2018

As recently reported in The Mandarin, the Victorian government recently signed a major deal to upgrade and extend its dedicated Metropolitan radio network for emergency services.

The Minister for Emergency Services, supported by Emergency Management Victoria and Partnerships Victoria, signed the seven-year $261 million contract extension with Motorola Solutions to provide and upgrade the Metropolitan Mobile Radio (MMR) network.

Pitcher Partners provided commercial and financial advice to the State throughout the planning and procurement process for this major investment.

We are proud to have been a part of the successful State negotiation team. This is a great outcome for the emergency services sector, and the Victorians they serve. It will deliver new functionality that will help save lives – as well as significant savings.

Pitcher Partners consistently demonstrated high quality in‑depth analysis, drawing on their commercial experience and robust financial modelling to inform procurement strategies, develop benchmarks and pricing templates, evaluate responses, and help us to improve overall value for money.

Pitcher Partners’ negotiation approach and frameworks helped ensure that opportunities and risks were identified early and managed effectively.” - State Government Representative
