  • Grow the strength and agility of grants policy and program, and regulate these areas with efficiency and fluidity
  • Reduce risks so you can pivot when there is political, social or legislative change.

Our government experience means we understand the unique needs and challenges faced in administering grants and grant programs.

Our Advisors have designed and delivered grant programs that withstand forensic auditing and public scrutiny.

We are skilled at tailoring program solutions to tricky project problems and we enjoy ensuring policy and program areas work collaboratively and feed back changes to new projects.

We can develop and advise on program governance and project regulation, including assurance and risk advisory services.

We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and get involved with your team in the delivery and analysis of your policies, programs and grants.
