Black Thistle secures new client in public sector

In November 2010, Black Thistle Contracts was awarded a contract to review and revise a set of lump sum bid documentation for Alberta Health Services.

The work was a landmark for Black Thistle, being the first venture into support of a public sector client.

The scope called for documentation to be developed and aligned to dovetail with new contractual standards established by Alberta Health Services, and was successfully completed by the target date of end 2010. The work was performed by Black Thistle Contracts principal, Keith Thomson, who commented that it has given both parties an opportunity to test whether the arrangement can be used for future similar work.
