Our Experience

We have applied financial advisory skills across a broad range of government procurement projects.

We understand the difficulty in properly estimating the costs of activities during long-lasting government contracts and use our broad knowledge in various cost-estimating techniques to inform your decision-making process.

Sharing these techniques and models, we have been able to successfully guide our clients with value for money and total cost of ownership decisions and provide reliable costs’ forecasts.

Our comprehensive financial advisory capabilities include:

  • Cost modelling and cost and benefit analysis
  • Specialist skills in modelling for government procurement initiatives.

Skills and expertise

We apply the right model to each specific client need and ensure the best outcomes.

We have been able to help our clients through the development and implementation of a range of modelling techniques, including:

  • Cash flow models to help predict funding and guide investment decision-making
  • Resource-based models used to help understand the full cost of an activity
  • Tender prediction models to ascertain market conditions
  • Total cost of ownership and value for money simulations.
