The brief:

World Rugby were seeking to redesign their bid process, governance, decision making and legal model to support the procurement of the host of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Our role:

We worked closely with World Rugby to re-design the decision making and evaluation approach, implement new due diligence processes, provide independent evaluation scrutiny, re-design the bidding documentation and work with each operational function to re-design the host nation legal agreement.

The result:

The process was relaunched in October 2015 and we have proactively supported World Rugby in managing and nurturing candidates to develop their bids and finalise legal negotiations.
