Advisory Services for Tambellini Clients

The Tambellini Group understands that building a modern technology environment is more than a project with a pre-determined timeline. In addition to the exclusive benefits received as a client, The Tambellini Group offers advisory services to help clients and their administrators create a technology strategy designed to meet the changing needs of a future campus.


Budgetary Estimate

Work collaboratively with The Tambellini Group analysts and advisors to develop a preliminary budgetary estimate for a technology change initiative based on the desired vendor(s) solutions, expected timing and approach, and a brief assessment of the institution’s current technology environment and available skills.


The Tambellini Group analysts and advisors lead an assessment of core system areas to identify and confirm the institutional priorities and goals associated with a technology change initiative. Through the assessment, The Tambellini Group will document gaps, requirements, readiness for change, high-level budgetary estimates, and recommend necessary steps to move forward.

Pre-selection Vendor Education

Collaborate with our analysts and advisors to develop a pre-selection approach that educates key stakeholders about the latest vendor solutions for finance, human capital management, and student systems. Analysts will assist in developing a high-level estimated implementation timeline.

Evaluation and Selection

Gain support for an institutional selection of a solution and the related implementation services. The Tambellini Group works collaboratively with the institution to design and execute the evaluation and selection processes for the technology capabilities and implementation services required to be successful.  

Procurement and Contract Negotiation

The Tambellini Group’s contract advisors have first-hand experience with industry best practices and standards. Each negotiation focuses on the institution’s business priorities, aligning legal and fiscal requirements, and assisting in aligning contracts to mitigate project and financial risk to the institution while expediting the negotiation process.
