    This study offers a unique contribution to the existing research on collaborative working by exploring the buy side challenges facing public procurement teams when managing Collaborative Network Organizations (CNOs): termed in this study as supplier consortia. Two online management tools are proposed. A Procurement Assessment Model (PAM) guides buyers in assessing the suitability of public contracts for consortia bids. A Bid/No Bid model is offered to help supplier align their potential CNO to the procurement and specification. This study is relevant for the public and private sectors but both tools proposed have been adopted by Government in Wales (UK) and included as updates within the formal Joint Bidding Guide. The Joint Bidding Guide has been developed, published and validated by the Welsh Government since 2013.
