We support growth, deliver security, drive value and promote innovation
We work with public sector organisations and international development partners to deliver solutions tailored to meet the challenges posed by a sector driven by the need for transparency, efficiency and value for money. We conduct a range of assignments in specialist areas across government transformation programmes.
Our approach is to draw on our established and proven experience spanning strategy, institutional reform, governance, financial management, procurement and supply chain management to redesign operational processes in a lean and sustainable manner. Our team has particular expertise in the challenges of public sector procurement, across the entire cycle from budget planning through to letting contracts, award and supplier management.
This allows us to focus on value on a whole-life basis. Across all our projects, we focus on building capability to deliver improved public services on a long-term basis post completion of our specific assignments.
We offer a full range of management, strategy and change management consulting services to organisations of all sizes.

In restructuring situations, we are able to work with management and lenders in all scenarios from strategic restructuring, to assessing the future viability of organisations in distressed situations to support the restructuring decision.
