Management Fees

Kennedy Scott works with a diverse national supply chain across our funding streams. These range from small niche providers, to charities, to specialist providers and large Primes.

In designing our supply chain, we take into account the scale of our supply chain member, their ability to deliver and the added value of specialist partners.

In designing our management fees, we follow the Merlin Standard and ensure our Supply Chain Partners are offered realistic unit prices and volumes to support future business growth.

Depending on the size and scale of the programme, the management fee is between 15% and 20%. In addition to this, Kennedy Scott provides administration, Management Information, research and data collection services to supply chain partners – this includes capacity building, performance improvement techniques, telekits, partnership brokering and supply chain development.
